Post-op day 5

Abby had a good day and is up and moving much more.  We went downstairs to play Doctor for a Day, to meet a therapy dog, and to play bingo!  She won a checkers game in bingo and had some impressive doctoring skills...she even used the Site Scrub to clean the baby's IV for the required 15 seconds! 😂 #medicalkid

 

As always, our nurses here have been great and we have gotten great care.  They did repeat labs a few hours ago and most everything is looking better.  Abby's halo has been adapted and is back on.  Much to my surprise and amazement, she didn't fuss or seem to care at all!  She has been perfectly fine with it on!  

 
Abby is eating better, thanks to the Prednusone munchies, and she has really seemed to enjoy food again!  I'm hoping this is the end of the three week fast!

 

Funny story--I threw my hair in a pony tail this morning (who has time for hair and make up in the hospital?!). Abby pulled me in like she was going to give me a hug and said quite sweetly, "You look just like...a boy!" 🤔. Thanks kid!  ðŸ˜‚

I've loved having my parents here to entertain Abby and just be a support.  They're the best!  We are hopeful that we are nearing the end of this hospital stay!!  ðŸ¤žðŸ»ðŸ™ðŸ»
