Caroline had another big day. At rounds this morning, the doctors decided that the drainage tubes in her chest should come out. In addition, her lines in her bellybutton needed to be changed. So, she had more than a few lines removed, but more had to be put in to replace them. I really hate seeing her get stuck and prodded. I'm glad she isn't old enough to watch me cringe and bite my nails. I guess I'll get used to everything...it is a big part of our lives now. We are in the process of weaning her off of the sedation meds and dopamine so that she will be encouraged to eat and breathe over the vent. She also got her feeding tube put in so she'll be able to have some of the milk I've been pumping. I'm glad...feeling like a diary cow is finally paying off. Today is the start of the week long Congenital Heart Defects Awareness Week. Did you know that 1 in every 100 babies are born with a CHD? I didn't until Miss Caroline. Kiss your babies and be thankful.
