Wow, another update! This one bears better news, though.

It was barely 8 pm when the doctor came by to tell us they were done. She said it was a “textbook operation,” that everything went smoothly. A few minutes later, they wheeled her by, so we were able to see her. She was awake and looking around.

45 minutes later, she was all situated in her new room in the PICU, fast asleep. She’s knocked out from sedatives, and she’s expected to be awake tomorrow. She’ll be able to resume her feeds in 24 hours or so, and they’re going to start bottle feeds in earnest soon. She’ll have a chest X-ray around 4 in the morning, and I think tomorrow they’re going to do a swallow test.
