Tenant of the Ward :(

Hope was extubated around 8pm last night and did very well.  She started receiving her feeds again at midnight and her blood thinner was re-started at 7am.  After rounds, the doctors turned off Hope's pain medication.  I don't think this is going to last, she is still uncomfortable and was showing signs of needing the medication within hours.  I'm not sure what the plan is going forward as the doctors never gave me a straight answer about it today.

This evening around 9pm, Hope is being moved to the ward.  I'm happy that she is stable enough to leave PICU, but crushed that we have to go back to the ward.  I have no idea how long we'll be living on the ward, but I'm not looking forward to it.  

Our friend Erika is here to take care of Sadie, but is graciously spending the first night with Hope on the ward.  That is a gift like no other for us, especially on a weekend.  If you know her, make sure you tell her how amazing she is!
