Over all she was away from us for about five and a half hours. Right now she is pretty sedated and resting. When they first brought her up to the CICU she had tried to roll over twice, so more medications were given to her. She is breathing on her own and everything is stable. Twice she has opened her eyes and turned towards me. One of those two times she reached for me and placed her hand on my lips. God I love her. I dont know what I ever did to deserve such a gift but I am so grateful for her.
She didn't have any problems during the surgery. NO SIGNS OF SEIZURES, but that is still in a gray area due to the fact that she is so sedated. Were hoping that the stress on her body wont trigger anything. So far, so good! One thing that was unexpected was that they found her airway to be slightly narrow. Its not something that I have ever been told and she has had anesthesia a few times in the past. No one seems to be overly worried about this, so for now, it is just an extra piece of knowledge.
|The nurses put these frilly green socks onto Vada's hands so she wouldn't scratch herself or pull on the wires. Cute, huh.|
I am preparing for a nap. I am so exhausted! Now that I have seen her, touched her, smelled and kissed her I can relax and breath a bit easier and I feel my body turning to putty as I write this. I hadn't planned on updating at this point, just because I am that tired, but I am so excited that Vada is doing so well that I had to take a minute to share the news .
The surgery is over, but the next couple of days, tonight especially, are the tough ones. So please continue to pray for our sweet girl and I will continue to update as things progress.
I just wanted to thank all of you again. To everyone who prayed, who took the time to lift my sweet angel up in your prayers, thank you. To those of you who wrote something in regards to her and today's events, thank you! To those of you who left wonderful, encouraging comments and messages, thank you. And to those of you who are silent and unknown but still praying for Vada and our family, thank you! The power of prayer is absolutely amazing. The power of friendship and love through Jesus Christ, is amazing and we have felt your love throughout the past couple of days and especially today. You are all amazing and I am thankful for each and everyone of you!
