Chunky Monkey

Caroline finally got to eat about an hour ago.  We had to stop her (of course) from eating the whole bottle for fear that she would make herself sick.  Other than that, everything is the same and we are playing the waiting game.  Post Glenn babies usually have a hard time from a bit of swelling and headaches.  She is puffy and her lungs are a little "wet" from all the medicines and from being on bypass.  This causes her to be more oxygen dependant.  She is still on 2 liters of 60% oxygen.  The few extra lasix doses will hopefully help this so we can take that nasal canula off...or she'll do it herself.  She has only needed one half of a dose of morphine a while ago (before she was allowed to eat) to calm her because she was so upset that her sats were bottoming out.  She is sleeping a lot.  I am not complaining because it seems that she is dealing with the trauma this way.  Keep up the prayers that she will continue to progress.
