Mya has had a really good day. She's come off of her blood pressure medication, the urine catheter, and the ventilator is close to being unneeded. They are keeping her on it because of the heart catheterization test tomorrow morning. It's scheduled for 8:00am. We're a bit nervous since she's done nothing "standard" and every procedure up until now has been "low risk." Everyone here jokes a bit about her having her own agenda... but they're very serious too about knowing what a wild card she has been. Assuming an uneventful procedure, hopefully she'll get her breathing tube out tomorrow, which she'll really appreciate. Today she's had times of being really alert, and clearly frustrated by the tube. She's made eye contact several times even though she's obviously drugged, it's great to see her little personality again. Generally those times are when she needs another shot of Morphine, but she is moving very normally (which is a huge blessing!).
