Bella is now closed. He also removed one of her chest tubes. Today will be a watching day to just let Bella get used to this new change.
A-line update: She does have a new line in. It is in her right foot. From the evidence on her body this morning, it took a while to get it, but at least it's in and she didn't feel it (thank goodness for sedation). My sister asked why do we need an A-line so badly. The A-line gives us very accurate blood pressure and pulse readings. Bella is still in danger and she could crash fast and hard. They want to be able to monitor her minutely and constantly. It's also another line if they need it.
As a Mama, I have to say she is doing really well. She is coming through this so much better than expected. I am so proud of you little one. Hang in there sweet baby.
