Sophia had a somewhat restful night, despite itching from the meds. She isn't happy about being here, but amazingly, I think they are going to dicharge her from the CICU today!
She needs to have her epidural removed, and her IV's taken out. She also has a Foley catheter to remove. So although there is much to do yet today, we are rejoicing.
She is beginning to complain more of pain in her side at the incision site. But they are giving her strong pain meds. She is having numbness in her right hand and her right eye is droopy, but the pain doctors feel this is due to the epidural and will resolve after it wears off.
I opened some sweet letters from loving friends and cousins today and showed them to her. She was so happy. She loved the drawings and bright flowers, the pretty swirly letters that spelled her name, and the sweet treats and encouraging words.
We are so very thankful to all of you who have been faithfully lifting her in prayer these past months. Thankful beyond words for our loving Father's kind care and protection of our little girl.
Please pray for her, a speedy and boring recovery. We will update again soon.
Much love to all of you!
