This afternoon with LC is a little more high maintenance as she's decided she is NOT enjoying her stay and would prefer to be elsewhere. She does NOT enjoy her multiple toobies, wrist restraints and is not going to sleep in case she should miss an opportunity to share her opinions.
Luckily, we have some extra hands on deck today as Grandpa Fred and Grandma Janet came for a visit. They're certainly getting an earful.
We're watching LC's breathing again, as she has returned to the deep belly breathing on one side that we saw before her lung collapse. They have her on her side (another reason for protest) and have suctioned her to try to improve its performance. Her doctor said it may be due to her chest trying to compensate for swelling/pain related to the incision during surgery and she may just be trying to avoid aggravating that area.
Her doctor would like her to stay in ICU for one more night so they can monitor her lung performance and fluids, but if they have more patients arrive in need of her spot they'll move her to a room on the cardiac floor. We'll keep you posted if any relocation occurs and in the meantime are still hoping to get wireless service back in business so we can post some updated photos of LC.
Thanks for checking back with us to see the progress and impact of your prayers...
