We have all of our IV lines off, except for the one in her ankle. Yay! She still has her chest tubes in, and they will stay in until probably tomorrow. There is a maximum amount of liquid that drains out, that if she passes that number, they have to keep them in. As you can see, both of her hands are completely free now and we have been able to take off the "no-no's" and she hasn't been messing with her chest tubes. She has had a GREAT day! She has slept alot, but has not been crying when awake, which is a huge difference from yesterday, and especially last night. She cant move quite yet, and has no desire to move yet either. The nurses have said that once the chest tubes come out she will feel a million times better and probably try to start moving then. I made them find a shirt for her to wear, so she is sporting a lovely Vanderbilt Children's Hospital top. Be jealous. They are still looking for a room for us on the main floor. No luck yet. I'll post later today if there are any new updates, otherwise I will post tomorrow.
