Abby bounced back pretty quickly from her setback yesterday. It looks like she reabsorbed the fluid well and did not need any surgical intervention to help her out. So just now, they did another chest x-ray and since it looked good, they started feeding her again. Yay! If she continues to tolerate her feeds, they will start to try and give her some by mouth tomorrow.
She is still having some irregular heart rate incidents, but they are giving her some medicine for that and said it is nothing to be concerned about. They also removed her pacing wires today. The doctors said that if all continues to go well, they will remove the lines in her umbilical cord tomorrow. Once that happens, we can hold her!
We are not going to make it to Aunt Barbara's tonight, but we will be thinking of everyone and hope you all have a great Christmas Eve!
