Jamie again, "guest blogging" for Amanda while she sleeps up in the parents sleeping dorm, hopefully soundly for the first time in two weeks. Hazel sounded pretty ragged for the first few hours after she came back from the OR, but they gave her a couple of nebulizer treatments -- which actually worked this time since she no longer had a battery in there -- and she settled down quite nicely. That is, except for the fact that she has already managed to pull out one of her brand new IV lines and her A-line -- without actually waking up. Oh well, they say it's not a big deal because they will be able to reduce the number of drips she is getting -- I see two fewer than yesterday, anyway. They also reduced her sedatives, so hopefully she will be up a little bit today. I am just sitting here staring at what without the whole respirator apparatus is starting to look like a very filthy and tired version of my baby.
