We're getting kicked out of ICU!
The past 24 hours have been monumental for us! Mya got her chest tube out, the pacemaker wires (standard procedure to add post surgery), her blood lines and is essentially disconnected from all the tubes; with the exception of one IV line that they're going to add. I will even get to hold her again today. So wonderful. We are going to be sent to the main floor this afternoon! She's been wired since 2:00am and hasn't taken a minute to relax. They were weaning her from her medication, possibly a bit too fast, and she's wearing out our nurses and I'm just getting the 1st chance in 4.5 hours to sit back down. She's playing like a champ and keeping us super busy. I have a feeling this will be my last posting for awhile. She's going to start to suck more of my time- I love it!

I'm so glad I ran into you before we left! Don't worry too much about peds, I just had to learn to be more vocal about Noelle's care.
