Today went pretty good. She has been off her moriphine for most of the day. Just on Tylenol and a codine type of med. Which is still strong. The idea is to just use thoses meds for pain because this is what she will go home with. She did nurse about three times today. She tolorated the meds for most of the day tell her 6 o'clock dose. She vomited about a half our later. The meds must of got into her system because she fell asleep after so she was comfortable and it's 10 now and is still sleeping. She has not wanted to sleep in the bed all evening so daddy went through a few movies holding her. After her 11 oclock cocktail of about four meds and some nursing she is in a good solid sleep. The healing kind of sleep. So hopfully she can hold all that in for at least an hour to get into her system. Well I know the Tylenol will because that did not go in her mouth.. Sorry Purna... Since I'm giving you a play by play she had some dirty diapers too which is one of the requirements to get out of her.
She did have a good day for sure. I don't think she had to much pain. There was a little bit of dancing, jumping and waving. She would not be doing these things if she was in a lot of pain so this made me very happy. It's so very werid to have your baby over night change into a totally differnt baby visual and personality (because she dose not feel good) so when I see her little chuby finger point at things and degawl ( purnas patiented word she made up and says all the time), I see my amazing Purna pushing through this like a champ. I can tell she is trying her hardest. Luckily when she gets worked up she just reaches for huges and holding this seems to be the best medicine. She has most of her lines out so holding her is easier now. There has not really been much talk of when she can home but were thinking Saturday or Sunday. They said that today is usally the worst day and Purna just show this day who's boss! I think she will be much happier with the swelling down tomorrow. After they pulled the drain tube out the blood begains to drain down her face and the brusing begains. So she is less swollen in these shots but her eyes are starting to bruse. This means the next healing process so it's good. Her body is getting less tight as well. So over all she had a good day we just need to work on the pukies.
I'll let you all know tomorrow how the night and morning went. Thanks again for your great comments and texts.
Here are some shots of play time today.
