Post op day 1

Abby had a good day today.  She had some good awake times and didn't require a ton of pain button doses.  She made a lot of great strides by getting her arterial line, Foley catheter, peripheral iv, and nasal trumpet removed.

This evening, she was able to transfer from her bed to the potty beside her bed, which was a huge accomplishment!!  She did really well.  

Tomorrow morning, she will get a CT done to check on a few things before she is cleared for pt.  Then the hard work will begin!  

Prayer requests:
* Abby's hips seem to really be hurting from the veptr being attached at the pelvis.  Every little movement seems to really hurt, so I think walking will be a very slow process. 

* Please pray for secure veptr placement.  Abby's "unique" anatomy made this a little challenging.

* We would both love to have a good, quiet night's sleep tonight!  If all goes well, she should move to the floor tomorrow--and hopefully to a single room!

Thanks, prayer warriors!  Here's a tiny smile from the bravest girl I know!
