Monday, Monday

This morning Mya had a great xray. She has one every day around 4:00am that they wheel into our room. Her lungs are beginning to clear up a lot. Great news. It also seemed that the left side of her heart looked smaller too; it'll be confirmed today with her test at around 1:00pm. That would be the best news since that was the entire objective of our surgeries.

As for getting out of here, several people have been asking an approximate timeline at this point. We asked our ICU doctor and he thinks that we could be out of ICU possibly by Friday and then out of the main floor a week after. She is on really high levels of medication that she'll have to be weaned from, slowly. Additionally she hasn't been eating much at all. She'll have to be eating solid foods again; baby steps. She hasn't even been able to speak at this point! We need that tube out first! Please pray for her test and that everything would be as expected- for once in our experience!

Hi Julie,

Kristin just sent me the link to your blog so I all got all the details for the first time. What a terrifying yet amazing journey. One of the best descriptions I ever heard for parenthood was that it was the beginning of a great adventure. Well, you have certainly made it through more adventure than anyone should have to. I’ll keep the prayers coming.
