Man are we tired. We still haven't been able to hold her yet but probably tomorrow. Today they took out the chest tube, 3 of the 4 IVs, and did an echo cardiogram. They ended up putting in an iv again though. The echo showed her heart is still enlarged because it is trying to learn how to work the new way. It is so used to working the old way that it will take some time for it to adjust. She is doing really well and should be able to move out of the PICU tomorrow. We are hoping.
Hailey is in the 4th grade this year. I can't believe how big she is getting. She is really into science stuff. She loves anything about the universe and planets. She loves to experiment and figure things out. Hailey is a wonderful big sister. She loves helping out and taking care of her little sister. She can make her sister laugh more than anyone and is VERY protective. We are so proud of her.
Bethany just turned 2. She is a sassy little girl but I wouldnt have it any other way She is a tough girl. She loves her big sister so much. She loves to play with her and they have a lot of fun together. She is into Curious George and Super Why. She can count to 14 and say her ABC's. She eats EVERYTHING! You would never know this kid had to have heart surgery!
