2nd Post-Op

Harlie is recovering well from her surgeries yesterday. She's still on the ventilator, but hopefully they will be able to wean her off tomorrow. It will be one less thing to have her hooked up to.

Unfortunately, the ENT docs don't want her being moved around until after they do the first trach change, which should be Monday. So, that means that we'll have to wait a little longer to hold her. Evidently, things could come "disconnected" until it heals in place.

Then next week, the training begins. We'll learn how to change her trach, which will be done once a week, and of course, learn how to work her feeding tube. Right now, it's pretty scary, but I know that with some time and practice, we'll get used to it.

Well, Murphy needs a bath, so I have to go. Talk to you later.
