Mya's Surgery Was A Success!
The news we've been so anxious to hear has been confirmed. Mya's surgery worked! We are so amazed by the results; genuinely a situation that will be written about in medical journals! The other wonderful news is that they took her off the ventilator too after her heart catheritization test, so the breathing tube is out after 13 days!!! I'm thrilled if you can't tell, it's such a blessing. They haven't taken out her chest drainage tube, but I assume it'll come out in the next day or so. She is breathing really heavily right now and pretty froggy, due to the junk in her lungs. She'll gain strength soon (possible by tomorrow) to be able to cough it out again, she's just been unable to do it herself for the past 2 weeks. She has also been hanging out for the past two days with her legs in the air. Since they went through her thigh area for her procedure, she has to keep it lowered for 4 hours, so they've restrained her little leg. It's definitely cramping her yoga pose style.
Everyone is amazed by her recovery. We just had a nurse call her a miracle baby. Our surgeon was even pressing the heart cath team for outcome information; as he was very interested in her status. We've had many nurses in our room checking on her and giving their congratulations! What a wonderful story for all of us to share, about our amazing little angel.
Rob is headed back to work tomorrow; hard for him to leave his little girl in the hospital, but real life is awaiting our return.
