What do you do when you feel so helpless, when all you want to do make your child better faster?
Today is a new day, and the plan to move forward to take the breathing tube out is still a go. Before Lauren went into her somehow you caught a cold. At this point she has some mucus that they need to remove before hand. Her breathing tube is a bit kinked, so they need to go down with a bronk (Not the Gronk LOL) a tube with a small camera attached to make sure everything is clear. They are being very cautious with everything. If all looks good, then the breathing tube comes out and Lauren can start to recover.
Lauren heart surgeon came in and told us the heart looks great. If he is happy, I'm happy.
I'm sitting with her now, and told the doctors, I want to stay in the room when they do the procedure, because they told me I would have to leave while they do it. Told them I have been through so much with Lauren, nothing bothers me so they agreed
Ok they did the procedure and everything is good. They are lifting the sedation, and our nurse took a picture of us. Lauren even did the thumbs up
In about an hour hopefully the tube comes out. Now that she is becoming more aware, Lauren is turning into Lauren. Giving orders, but we have no idea what she is saying. Trying to read her lips with the tube in is hard.
Will update later when I have more news.
