Thank you for all the sweet comments on our last post!! The last couple days have been rough for Bela, but what kept me positive was knowing how much better this will make her life! She left for the OR room in the nurses arms looking over her shoulder at me saying 'mama, mama' and crying. Wow, I thought it was hard before, but hearing mama almost ripped out my heart! The waiting was hard, always is..not near as hard as her open heart surgeries, but still hard. After 2 hours we went up to her room to see her and she was screaming! Boy was she not happy. So they gave her a shot of morphine and she relaxed a little. The rest of that day was rough for her though... Eleven pokes to get in ONE darn IV! Getting in an IV is so darn hard for Bela! And she hadn't eaten since 9 o'clock the night before and couldn't eat until 8! Poor little thing.. After a miserable day she finally went to sleep around 9:30 and slept pretty good at night. She woke up a couple times in pain and because of monitors, but she tolerated her food all night long which was great! She was already feeling better in the morning and we got the go ahead to go home! I love quick, uncomplicated stays! She slept most of the day yesterday and went back to sleep today after being up for an hour. I'm so glad she's sleeping and keeping her food down. Hopefully by next week she'll be back to herself. Having the tube out is going to be so good for her little nose. Her congestion has already cleared up! It's amazing what the tube was doing to her nose and cheeks...no more constant congestion, bloody noses, and open sores on her cheeks. I'm so excited to have her face back!!
How grateful we are that we were just there for a gtube placement. Being there is so hard to see so many very sick babies, it brought back a lot of emotions. We are SO incredibly blessed!
