After they put an additional drainage tube in, Namine’s stats improved significantly. Her temperature is a little high, but that may just be an effect of having surgery (especially heart surgery). She was still quite sleepy while we were visiting her, although she did open her eyes a few times, only to decide we weren’t worth waking up for. :)

We suspect she’s still quite uncomfortable. She has a line in her right shoulder, which is her bad shoulder, and her right hand is still hooked up to a lot of other tubes. She’s still intubated, which we well know she hates, and they have her left arm restrained because she already tried extubating herself. Oh yes, we know we have a fighter on our hands.

Tomorrow they plan to put her trach back in, so they can extubate her. They also plan to start feeding her again.
