I am happy to report she is now OFF the ventilator and breathing well on her own! The tube came out about an hour ago at 3pm or so. The epideral seems to be working just fine. I was very concerned about whether it was going to kill the pain. It can be left in for up to 5 days! One baby step at a time!
She has only opened her eyes twice. She is very sleepy. If you remember she was this way the last two times she has been extubated so we expected this reaction. We are praying that infection staya away. Her incision looks red in a few areas so we are keeping a close eye on that.
Ava got a Mic key button placed during surgery. This is a tube that sticks out of her stomach so that we can give her food and medicines through it. Plus wecan suction as well. Her NG tube is still in her nose as we are still getting green bile out of it. When it slows down this too will come out.
Please continue to pray! Thanks a million!
BUT again she did very well today. We saw another miracle today our baby is breathing all on her own! God is good!
