One down - One to Go

Callie's surgeries went well today. The ENT said she did have a lot of thick fluid in one of her ears. Good thing we got tubes, now it can just drain on its own. The General surgeon said the Nissen fundoplication (wrapping the stomach around the esophagus) went well. As well as he would expect anyways. She was admitted to the PICU where she was still intubated until she stabilized. Once she started to breath on her own and started to move they removed the tube. Her pain got away from her a bit today. The nurse did a good job of staying on top of it and talking with the doctor. It was nice to have a good nurse in the hospital - but we usually do in the PICU. We know the nurse that is on tonight which makes it easier to go to Ron's house to sleep. They told us who was all on tonight and we asked for her. Thankfully we were able to get her. I don't know if it is a good or bad thing when you know so many of the nurses. Good - then you know who you work well with or Bad - means we spent to much time there?? Chris is staying in Marshfield tonight. I came home to be with Zak. We will swap out tomorrow afternoon.
We are hoping neurosurgery and neurology will stop by tomorrow to address Callie's twitching episodes. Other than that it is time to rest and heal so we can come home. The doctors thinks we will start feedings on Friday. Depending on how she is doing we hope to be home Sunday or Monday according to the Dr.
