( this is how Ben worries! Sleeping! )
The next day she was doing much better and we were able to go to the playroom. It was a little annoying though because of her IVs and the alarm for it kept going off. She wasn't eating much and only drinking a little juice. She was throwing up quite a bit because her esophagus was swollen from surgery. Hew tummy was bloated from all the air they had pumped in from the procedure and just from being worked on. They decided to keep her one more day until they could see she was eating more and drinking enough.
(I felt like I was watching the clock just waiting until we could go home!)
By Sunday she was almost back to her happy self. It was getting harder to keep her in the crib so we went to the playroom a couple times and she was able to get the IVs removed. She was eating a little bit but drinking alot more. We were finally let to leave around 3 that afternoon.
The nurses we had were wonderful. They really made staying there almost enjoyable. They loved Audrey and couldn't get over her 2 toned hair! I actually had a few different people stop us on our way out if I colored her hair! Nope I'm not a crazy person! She just had very unique hair.
( Audrey's "cage" )
Audrey is on a soft diet for 3 weeks. She is not supposed to have anything thicker that mashed potatoes for that long. Its not going well because she hates pureed foods, she usually just spits it all over me. but I've started to just give her the food we are eating in really tiny pieces and she seems to be doing well with that, And she's been eating alot on bread and cheese which makes for delightful diaper changes!
We are so happy that everything went so smoothly. We are so blessed by all our family friends that prayed for Audrey. We are so thankful for our family that took care of our other kids while we were down at the hospital. Thank to everyone who said a prayer. We are so blessed to have you all in our lives!
I have a little girl hanging on my pants now and I'll have to do some more updates later on about what we've been up to. See you soon :)
