Good Day-Post Op Day 3

Today has been much better! We are almost back to where we were before the problems yesterday! They did take out one of the three drainage tubes. She does have a new tube today down her other nostril. It goes into her stomach and helps to drain her stomach of air and stomach acid. She seems to feel much better now! She has gotten up to goal on her feeds. She is getting 25cc of formula every hour, which is about 5 teaspoons. As small amount as that is, we are very happy! This goes straight into her intestines, so she does still feel hungry. Zoey is very thirsty, but obviously can't drink because of the breathing tube. She keeps sticking out her tongue trying to get something to drink. I am sure she will love the first bottle she gets! Oh a couple of things I wanted to clarify... We only slept in the parking lot one night. The other nights we have left. I still have the mattress in the van though and everyday I go take a nap in the van for a little bit. Back about a year ago I was asked lots of questions about the stuffed lamb in Zoey's bed. It didn't mean anything a year ago, so I never said anything about it. Now, you can see she has 3 lambs in her bed with her. This is because she LOVES lambs! She says "Baa" all the time! It is so cute! They are defiantly her favorite animal, although she loves dogs too. I can't wait until she is better enough to hear her say "baa" again! Uncle Clint and Aunt Alyssa (Ok, well almost aunt...their wedding date is November 18th!) came to visit. I haven't done a good job about taking pics of visitors but I am going to try to do better! Perfect! It didn't last long, but they were very good all day! This is a video of when Zoey was awake a little bit. She kept sticking out her tongue since she is so thirsty video

Maddie asked whyshe had 2 lambs actually:) Ironically all of my kids have a special lamb and she had her lamb by her side when she went to surgery too. She wanted to make sure her siblings all had a special lamb as well:)Whatever makes them feel comfort right.
