Elie’s surgery went well yesterday. Dr Wulkan said the part that took the longest was finding a vein (they had to go through her groin in the end). They extubated her quickly (took the breathing tube out of her throat) on request of Dr Brooks. She is now on a bi-pap until ‘she decides she wants to come off it’.
We are in the PICU with watchful care and will be moving to a regular hospital room when Elie is ready.
Baby girl had her eyes open and looked around a bit this morning as much as she can.
Elie was taken off the bi-pap and is breathing well.
