What a difference a day makes.. especially around here.
She got her IV fluid turned off because we are feeding her through her Gtube now and she is keeping it all down. That was the last line that was connected so we were able to get rid of her IV pole and lines and pumps. This just makes it SO much easier for her to be mobile. Huge!
This morning about 10:00 the neuro doctor came in to tell us that her EEG looked perfect. Absolutely no sign of a stroke and no seizures. Yes yes yes yes yes! and a wahoo too! Can I even express the relief? She is still not using her left arm or hand, but he tested her arm for reflexes and hers were great. He believes it is nerve damage and she just has to regain full function through therapy. We've done that before, we can do that again. I know she'll be just fine, digging in the sand in no time.
She got her 'hat' off and all 50 probes that were on her head and we were able to go for another walk. She walked twice as far today. So proud of her. Her little legs got going so fast! She let us know when she was tired and we took another wagon ride.
Then we got more great news... her other chest tube was coming out!! We gave her some different meds and the removal of this one went so much better. It is out. Can I say that again? It is out! I can't believe it!!! 6 days post op... amazing.
We just finished washing her hair and all the goop from the EEG out. I massaged her head and we poured warm water over it and she loved every second of it. So good to do something that felt good for her. She is now sleeping in her daddy's arms.
Like I said... What a difference a day makes.
