EASTER PICS - Home from hospital 10 days.
Hi! Sorry I was off for a bit, but we took a quick break and rest when we returned home, as you can imagine!
Katie Grace Hua Hua is doing great! She is running around and playing just as if nothing ever happened. It is hard to keep her from being too active as the instructions given ask!
She doesn't think anything of her long incision and chest tube incisions. They are just part of her and she really doesn't mind them at all. They are still slightly scabbed but never bruised. These incisions should heal well and fade to fine lines.
She is still weaning off several meds, about 5 days left of that, and then she will remain on the Pulmonary Hypertension medication for about 6 months.
We have been back to the hospital 2 times. Once last week, just a few days after discharge for an echo to look at the cardiac effusion (liquid in the heart), which was diminishing quite well and for a wound check. Then we were back again yesterday, only because I had a job interview. :) I brought the 2 girls and Christina took Hua Hua to lunch while I interviewed. Then we went up to PCICU to visit our nurses and Dr.s! Hua Hua's favorite nurse and true love, Collin, was there, so that was quite an exciting visit. ; )
Here are some photos from Easter. That was the day after we arrived home. Katie Grace was a bit too medicated to go to church, but Christina dressed her in her Easter dress and took pics of the 2 littles. :)
