Recovering from G-tube Surgery
Jilly's surgery went well : ) Other than needing oxygen overnight because her sats were low (even for her) she has been great! She was taken off of oxygen at about 6 this morning and has been breathing on her own ever since. She's very hungry- she hasn't eaten in over 24 hours- so we're hoping we can start feeding her small amounts soon. She was put in the CICU (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit) last night, as the whole hospital is on bed alert, meaning they are packed! This was pretty much the only place in the hospital to have any open bed spaces. We are waiting to be moved to CPCU (Cardiac Progressive Care Unit) for tonight and then hopefully home tomorrow.
