Mya is still not able to speak from having the tube down her throat. I it could take up to 2 weeks to get back to normal, assuming no permanent damage has been done. She was doing pretty well eating until last night, and now she doesn't want to have anything down her throat. We think she has a really sore throat from the tube. They're coming soon to watch her swallow and possibly put a camera down her throat to see how things look. Unfortunately for Mya, she may have to have a feeding tube down her nose again if she doesn't start to consume on her own. They want to give her a diarrhetic to get some fluid out of her lungs from today's Xray, but can't give her that medicine if she's not taking in any liquids. However, with all of this, they're still planning on kicking us out this weekend. I can't wait to go home! Between monitor alarms, baby roommates who cry all night long and hospital food, we're all ready for a good night rest in our own beds. We bought Mya her first doll, she loves it! I've never noticed her hugging anything previously, but she naturally grabs the doll and holds it tight! Of course she has matching hair, they're pretty sweet together.
