Post-Op Update

It has been two days since Gracie had her first surgery and she is doing well. Yesterday was a rough day; she had a hard time regulating her body's stats and oxygen levels. We couldn't talk to her or touch her because it over-stimulated her to the point of using too much energy and the nurses wanted her to use her energy and oxygen to heal. But after tweeking some meds she is doing well.

Today she wasn't as blue and a lot of the swelling went down. We were able to talk with her as much as we wanted. When we first got to the hospital she was kindof awake, though still very drugged up. The surgeons came in and irrigated her wound and talked of closing her chest, but decided to wait.
