Tricia did awesome today. She sat in her chair for most of the day, took a walk up and down the ICU hallway (twice) and stayed off the vent for 7 hours straight! She'll try to go even longer tomorrow! Needless to say she is exhausted and ready for some sleep.
Gwyneth is about the same, which is a good thing. They're keeping a close watch on her and doing a lot of precautionary stuff. She is sleeping and breathing like a champ, so it's obvious that she could care less what's going on inside her belly, so that makes us feel a little easier. As soon as her GI stuff gets well, they'll stick a feeding tube down her throat and give her a few more drops of breast milk.
I am hanging with Tricia tonight, although I may head home if she sleeps as well as I'm hoping she will.
Here are a few pics from the past few days!
Check in tomorrow morning around 9am EST...I promise that my next post will be the best ever!
