Post-Op Day 2

Today went much better than expected!

Instead of continued increased swelling, the swelling began to decrease beginning early this morning. She looked like a pirate for a little while.

Mike, his mom, and myself were all able to hold her today. (She was too uncomfortable being held yesterday. )

The hematologist stopped by and said if he hasn't seen the ultra sound he wouldn't know that she had a blood clot in her leg. The color and temperature of the legs are nearly identical.

By the end of the day she was nursing. Her swelling had gone down enough that she can open both eyes.

She has a little cough and is spitting up some mucus. Her temperature was rising but has been kept in check by the Tylenol. They're keeping her in the PCU because of her blood clot.
Hoping for another day of progress tomorrow!
