Post op day 6

Abby had a better day today!  Her emotions were under control and there weren't nearly as many tears today!  She worked super hard today and pushed through the pain.  She did great with pt and even climbed a flight of stairs like a rock star!!  I was shocked at how well she did.  The PT actually signed off on her (not that she's fine, but that she is safe and we are trained to take care of her at home.  

We still aren't sure when we will go home.  That's up to Dr. C., who is still in charge even when he is away.  Love that about him!!

We did a few crafts today to pass the time and keep her sitting up in her chair.  This was one of them!


Lots of things were better today!
* Abby climbed the stairs and was cleared from pt.
* Her attitude was much more positive today!  The pain is excruciating and she was definitely hurting, but her attitude about working hard was much better.
* Certain post-op tummy issues were causing problems.  That pressure was finally relieved today! :)
* She took a nap today without oxygen.  This is progress!

Prayer requests:
* That we can hang in there for a few more days!!!
* Abby can continue to work hard and get stronger.  Walking is still very hard for her.
* She will tolerate her feed tonight and not have anymore vomiting.
* Caleb and Matt can hold down the fort at home.

Your prayers are working!!  Thank you!!
