Day 3 Post Op

We aren't home.  Em slept well but oxygen is still needed from time to time.  We ended up having an extra xray today and they found that part of her left lung is collapsed.  They think it's just struggling to wake up because of the long surgery.  Her hemoglobin was also on the low end.  So we are staying at least another night to see if those both improve.  If they don't, she will be sent to Children's Hospital.  They were hopeful that wouldn't happen though.

She also got her hair washed, did occupational therapy, physical therapy twice, xray/photographs, removed her drains and bandages, gave blood again, had a popcorn/ movie party, breathing exercises every 2 hours, and walking as much as possible.

Spa Day
OT took pictures of her and Kenna to use as the new directions for other future halo kids.  She was excited to see the finished directions.

Having trouble keeping her head straight.

Movie/Popcorn Party

This breaks my heart.  She is so incredibly strong.  They also had to shave the bottom of her hair.  


  1. Aww 🥰 still praying for her recovery. At least she went have popcorn party . Right after my surgery, I didn’t wanna do anything! She’s a bigger trooper than I was. Keep trucking along emi. It will get better. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️
