We just moved to the surgical floor about 3 hours ago. Ava is really restless and has not slept in a few days. I can't tell if it is pain or restlessness. Last night she got panicky and she acts as though someone has a very scary mask in front of her. She can't get into a deep sleep.
They took away her Cloridine from her epideral this morning and guess what? Her high heart rate returned. Huh can anyone hear me? I know things. I told them it was a medicine she was on but they said it wasn't. Why am I always right? Maybe because I know Ava.
She is doing all the right things. Her NG draining went from green to yellow. She did smile for me today. I don't want to be here long. She gets depressed and I want her healing well. She does that best at home.

I insisted on taking my baby to the surgery room. I was surprised they let me stay until they has sedated her. I had to gown up.

Today for the first time she started to act like our Ava. It was nice to see her sparkle again. She is no where back to normal but she is working hard to get there.
