Hospital stay day 2 has gone by slow and fast. The hospital never sleeps- there is always beeping, and hustle/bustle going on. We are so lucky to have such caring, attentive nurses. The surgeons came by this morning and were very happy with the incision site. When they came by in the afternoon they decided she could have the nose tube (which was emptying her stomach) removed! Yay! One less thing for Reba to try and yank out. When they pulled the long tube out, Reba clapped- she was so happy to see that thing go! After that nose tube was removed she got a Popsicle, and loved it. We can’t wait to feed her real food, hopefully tomorrow.
Yaya (Rachel my sister) came today and brought Zoe! We were so excited to see them. Zoe “worked” on Reba with her doctor kit.
The pain is being managed with the epidural and IV pain meds. Maybe tomorrow they will start cutting back a little.
We are grateful and looking forward to every day healing and getting stronger.
