Haley finally had her surgery today to have her bowels reconnected. She came through it like the little fighter she has always been. After Dr. Bloss performed her surgery she was able to come off the vent before she left the recovery room. She didn't have to have any help with her breathing at all nor did she need any extra oxygen. Before her surgery as we walked with her down to the surgical suites she was wide awake looking as cute as ever. She didn't have a clue that she was going to go through her 6th surgery, but she did very well and is resting tonight. We love this little girl so very much, we hope and pray this is the last time she will have to go under for surgery. We are starting to sense that her time in the hospital is coming to an end. We do not know when she will be home, but we are starting to feel it will be sooner than later.
Rachel has had a pretty good day today as well. We weren't able to spend as much time with her today due to her sister Haley's surgery. Thomas was able to spend some time with her and hold her this afternoon. She continues to plug along on her cpap. She seems to be a little more comfortable on the cpap prongs she is currently on. She is such an active little girl. She loves to sit in her bouncy chair and just look around. The nurse was telling us that she loves to look out her window when she is sitting in her bouncer. She is getting bigger by the day. She weighed 6 pounds 12oz tonight. Her growth has really picked up. We continue to pray for her to out grow the floppy airway and reflux.
We are grateful for our beautiful little girls. They both bring so much happiness to Thomas and I. We hope that all will work out for them both, and that they both will be home with us as soon as possible. Thanks to all the physicians and nurses for their help and loving care with our little girls.
