As of 4:00pm today her "stats" are great. Mya is progressing very well. The nurses just cheered her on, not having to give her anymore blood- something they expected to have to do. They just started to feed her via IV for the first time too. I'm sure she's hungry, since it's been 36 hours since she's had anything in her little tummy. Mya gets to warm up tomorrow morning! I'm not sure why I'm so excited for this, other than I hate being cold myself! They're going to stop cooling her blood around 8:00am, which will be 36hours post CPR. Tomorrow is a big day for her and for choices to be made. They're going to allow her to wake up for a short time to see what kind of movement she'll make to see if there is any visible brain damage and may do a CT scan to look into it further. They'll also decide on going forward with surgery or not... we'll see. Until then, she's holding her own taking positive baby steps to getting better. The nurses gave her a few little beanie babies to hold onto (they're actually holding the tubes off of her body) in addition to a bow in her hair to make sure incoming staff members know she's a girl! They've been great to talk with today, as they are keeping us very calm since everything is very procedural to them.
