Doing So Well

Bella is doing so well.  I love watching her breathe.  She is sating well. 

They have increased her sedation drips because of the pain from her incisions.  She spiked a little fever last night, but not bad.  It was half expected because of the surgery. 

Her right upper lobe has collapsed again.  Her dieresis was good from yesterday.  Her potassium is still low, so we’ll get a double dose this time.

I got to watch and ask tons of questions as they suctioned and changed the dressing.

The doctor said, God willing, she should be home in three weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
