Update - Wednesday AM (I think)

Grace had a better night. I actually slept too. She did start getting agitated around 4:30ish this morning. But, she recovered from her desatting (when she goes below 70 on her oxygen level is desatting). She has been crying and getting upset on and off since then. Two things that have her really upset is the tubes and then being restrained. I can't say I blame her. I am feeling better since I got a lot more sleep last night. The doctors and nurses here and other health care professionals really are great. I know she's in good hands. This morning she drank a little pedialite (she had to have it in her bottle with the huge nipple) and she was mouthing Hope, well, the "pah" sound like she does. It still amazes me that the first word she has chosen to attempt to say is the dog's name who freaks her out still.

They did tell me most likely they are going to have to put a chest tube in her left side to drain the fluid off of that side. You know, I'm all for it since it really has helped her when they did the right side. It just sucks for her because it's another tube and another mini surgery. I am probably going to go home for a little bit today so I can take a shower and showers work wonders! I know that I need to take care of myself so I can take care of my girl.

Thank you all for your kind words, support, prayer and love. We need it and appreciate it. Grace and I love you! I'll keep you updated

I am probably going to

I'm glad you both had a better night and glad to hear that Grace is in good hands.

How cute that she was saying the dogs name. Ava puts up with our dogs, but I doubt she would be too sad if they disappeared. ;)

Please continue to keep us all updated.
