2 Days Post-Op

Kirby had a good night. Took her off one blood pressure medicine and weaned down on another. They turned down the ventilator a bit as well. They decided to turn off the paralytic.....which they had to turn back on after only 5 minutes b/c Kirby decided to start moving all over the little fighter. They also gave some more sedation and pain meds. Her stats, sats and blood gases all look good. Thank you Lord for a great day!

Also, I think I forgot to mention that when she came out of surgery, she was on a temporary pace maker and we were told she would probably need a permanent one. The morning after surgery, they turned it off to test her and her heart was completely in rhythm on its own and has been ever since. Praise the Lord. She also has been "peeing" so much that she soaked through her cathater, through her diaper and all over the bed. Ha....thats what happens when you pray for "pee" more than can be contained. Kirby got her toenails painted last night and is doing great!
