Day 3: A Hospital Christmas
Katie didn't sleep very well last night, but she was calm. We watched "A Christmas Story," which doesn't deserve it's place in classic films, IMHO. She's started getting tube feedings, which is increasing her strength. She's used ice packs, which have reduced her swelling. Still dealing with a low-grade fever, but no one seems to be too concerned - seems to be considered normal post-surgery. She's getting stronger, and walking helps clear her lungs - been suctioning a lot. Pain is still a significant issue - I think we'll be in the hospital at least one more night.
Nothing else to report. Have a wonderful Christmas, and thanks for your prayers!
