Healthy Heart Club, Update 6

Awake!

Checking email

Sitting Up

Lucy had a big day yesterday. Her chest tube was removed, arterial line was pulled, pacemaker wires were pulled and sedation was stopped. She woke up a happy, smiling girl. It was so nice to see her beautiful blue eyes again.

We left the ICU and were moved to the Heart Center.

If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

Lucy's blood pressure was really low all night even after receiving dopamine. And in true Lucy fashion, we are back in ICU. Been awake for way too long and we're all in a delirious stupor.

Our Vada has the Seahorse and the VTECH toy. We brought both to the hospital when she had her heart surgery as well! I am so glad to see that your darling is doing well. Getting those lines puled makes things seem so much better!

Glad her tubes are coming out. Ollie felt so much better without all the accessories! Praying for better blood pressure!

Lucy, Lucy, LUCY! You need to get that bp up and let your peeps get some sleep! Can't you just get really mad at some of those poking nurses? That usually gets MINE up!

Continuously sending good thoughts and positive mojo to Lucy and to y'all.

A few steps forward...a few steps back...sneak a few more 'forwards' in, okay LucyRubyRedhead?

Love that picture with Dad, though. Has that kid mastered the sarcastic warning glare or WHAT? "Back it up, Jack. Private email...why don't you go get another one of those coffees you've been sucking on and let a girl check her inbox in peace?"

Oh Lucy, we were so excited to hear that you had moved on up until we caught that you just couldn't leave your friends in the ICU!
Praying for you guys!
