Decorating for Halloween!

This is Ava's newly decorated door in the PICU.
This is what Ava sees when she looks up.

Precious sleeping Angel!

Ava had a very good day today. SHE POOPED THIS MORNING! That is huge. I think she is turning the corner. Hopefully the docs will get her surgery done Monday or Tuesday because Miss Ava is way over breathing the ventilator. Her blood gases have been great. They just weaned her Dex. today and she is a pee champion so they discontinued the Lasix.

She was awake a few hours today and wanted to watch Barney. he would drift in and out because she is till on a lot of pain medicines. The good news is that she finally knows us as Mommy and Daddy. She pushes things away that she doesn't want. It is so nice to see her back! Her eyes are sucken in a little and her arms and legs are back down to the size they should be. Her face is still a little swollen and her bely is also very extended. BUT over all she looks great. I just wish they would hurry up with surgery and get her off the vent. She hasn't been fighting it, although we did have to tie her arms down because she was trying to pull out the tubes. YEP she is feeling better!
