Out of surgery

Literally as I was typing up my last post the doctor walked in!

Olivia did fantastic. Very small incision. I asked if he saw anything “unusual” and he said he didn’t go looking for trouble.

She’s already breathing on her own (extubated) and we’re just waiting to see her!

She’ll have a nose tube for draining the bile until her intestines start working again (they stop working after “trauma” or surgery). Then she’ll be able to feed again.

He’ll be giving her tylenol rectally and little shots of morphine as needed.
