When we saw Bethany this morning she was looking good. They had taken her off oxygen and her levels were great...better than before! Later on they took her off the temporaory pacemaker and removed the catheder because she was drinking and figured she would pee on her own. After they took her off the pace maker she started to lose coloring and turing pale again so they put her back on and she is doing great. She hadn't pee'd for hours so they put the catheder back in. Because she is still being paced they will not let her move out of PICU. Other than all of that she is doing really well. She has been slightly active by waving a little bit(only because I think she is hallucinating). She still gets mad at us because wewon't pick her up.....we can't yet and that is the hardest part for now.
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!
