Recovery Day 2

Last night was a long night.

Elise didn’t sleep much. When she did sleep it was in my arms. She spent most of the night trying to kick off the glowing oxygen/heart monitor.

This morning she was feeling so good that she was grabbing her toes and even rolling over in the crib. She was happy and playing and talking up a storm. I think she pushed herself a bit hard because after playing she started to hurt again.

Around 7:30 a doctor came in along with the Resident that has been with Elise through the whole process. This is the same Resident that played peek-a-boo with her just before she went under and the same Resident that has been checking in twice a day ever since. The doc we didn’t know removed the dressings!

Elise looks so different. I can’t get over it. I can’t get over that only two days ago we handed Elise over to the anesthesia team. She is such a champ and is so strong.

It took me an hour to write this post because of all the coming and going. Our room is a hoping place. Dr. Clay, his nurse and the Resident just came in and said that she is looking great. We are cleared to leave tomorrow morning!

Check out all the pics.

    I can’t believe how much different she looks. It is amazing! I am so glad that she is doing well. I hope that she recovers quickly. She is such a sweet little girl.
