Shawn and I were a little later than normal getting to the hospital because we actually slept REALLY good for the first time in a while. They said that her co2 levels were getting better and better. BUT the belly button lines where they gave nutrients, meds, and drew blood from could no longer be used so they had to take them out. These only last about 10 days so it was not a surprise. Now they have to prick her poor little heel for blood (was every 6 hours at first but got turned into every 8 since her gasses were improving). And then the part I didn't like AT ALL was they had to put in a PICC line through her arm (where we normally get blood drawn from) that runs all the way to right above her heart. They said that was going to be for nutrients and meds and that it was better on the risks of infection. So she had that "procedure" done this evening. They gave her pain meds though and she was pretty much knocked out the entire time. It still made mommy nervous and sad that she already had to go through more pain.
Backtracking a little--She was SUPER feisty this morning so they had to swaddle her tightly with blankets so she didn't try yanking things out of her body. She was still restless so they decided to let me hold her. I was on cloud 9 of course but it helped her too. She fell asleep and was calm for the rest of the day.
When we went back up there after shift change daddy got to hold Miss Sunni too! She is probably going to be a daddy's girl---or daddy thinks so anyway.
We had a great day and feel a little more like mommy and daddy today! We sure love that little girl. Thank you for the continued prayers, love, and support.
We love showing her off..........
