PICU update

Immediately post-op

Gabrielle had a pretty good night here in the unit. She rested comfortably with just Tylenol for the pain. We are trying to avoid narcotics as last time they seemed to cause nausea.

We had some friends from North Carolina crash our roof her in NYC which made for a very pleasant evening. They didn’t carry me on a mat or anything (Mark5:1-5) but they did drive all the way to NY to show their support and brought dinner, drinks, and dessert. Thanks Dave and Bobby for showing us the love of Jesus.

Gabby was wide awake at 4:00am after we changed her linen and gave her some medication. She asked for her siblings by name, she pointed to her head wrap and stated she was hot. She saw my iPhone and requested her favorite song. She sang along to the music and fell back asleep with the music playing next to her ear. She waved hi to the doctors that came by this am and is generally behaving in a very encouraging manner.

She will go for an MRI today because they held off on doing one after surgery yesterday.

I’ll update later.
Thanks for all of your comments, tweets, and messages!
