October 15, 2009

Charlotte took 22 mls at 7 a.m. and then wasn't allowed to eat anything for the rest of the day due to her surgery. Around 10 a.m. she started crying and fidgeting because she was hungry and it was hard to not just give her a bottle.

She was intubated at 11:30 a.m. and had her surgery from 12:30 - 3 p.m. Everything went well, but her poor little eyes are red and swollen from being held open for so long. We won't know for 2 weeks how successful they were, but hopefully this was it. She's still intubated and currently riding the vent (not attempting any breaths on her own), but her blood gas tests have been coming back fine so they'll continue to wean the vent to "force" her to breathe on her own again. As she wakes up she's showing some signs of discomfort, but the 3 different eye products should help her feel better.
