Sorry there was no 3am post today, Liv was sleeping when I got here so I did too. The water and food have been slow going. Livvy has been pretty queasy and not much has stayed down until the last six hours. Her post op echo showed decreased heart function, pretty normal for these kids but also an explanation why shes been so sleepy even off pain and sedation meds. The staff is not concerned because all her labs are great and liver, pancreas and kidney function are perfect. If things were sliding South her numbers would show stress on other organs. She's happier this morning but really wants to be picked up. So far both Brian and I have refused her because we fear she'll really fight us when the time comes to go back in the crib. Chest tube drainage is continuing to slow and lasix are doing their job because shes not as puffy. Her EKG from yesterday showed that the PACs have slowed considerably so another step in the right direction. Dont know what today brings but hopefully Miss Liv will start showing some interest in all the toys she has waiting for her to play with just for this trip.
