Lindley Day 2

Just a quick note to thank you guys as always for all your kind words.

Lindley is doing well! Her leakage before was a 3+ on a level of 1 to 4. Now she barely has any leakage at all! The breathing tube was removed before she was sent to the ICU. Yay! They are currently taking out several other tubes. Ironman told me not to watch, so I'm taking this opportunity to update you. She's been sedated most of the time. She cried for hours last night asking me to give her something to drink since they had to dehydrate her during the surgery. She was only allowed one ice chip every 30 minutes and her lips and tongue were parched. I felt horrible for her. She didn't understand why I wouldn't give her something to drink.

Today she's been more agitated as predicted. She's waking up more and wanting to pull out the central line that goes from her neck down into her heart. She's angry that I won't take the tube out of her neck. She's been asking for her grandparents to hold her, and she wanted to see her twin sister and little brother. Unfortunately her twin was scared to see her as she is and didn't want to be around her, but Lindley cried when we took Gracie away.

So I'm happy to report the surgery went well, and now we're praying for a speedy recovery. I'm ready to see her back to being herself.

Gotta run! More later as I have time.

  • Thank you for the updates! I'm praying that the rest of the tubes and wires are removed quickly. Usually once they start coming out, it's not long before they are all out!

    The first few days are the hardest and things will get better. Hang in there and I'm so glad to see that little Miss Lindley has all that fight in her. hehe... just you wait.. she will be up to no good before long. ;-)

    ((Hugs))!

  • Very good news. Hope the twin is willing to see your little girl soon.

    How's Ironman taking all this? I can tell you're fairly stressed but how's he doing?

  • I am so glad things went well and she is recovering as nicely as she is. Thanks for keeping all of us updated Jenny. I hope she will be able to drink as much water as she wants soon. I don't know how long she will be in the hospital yet but I am assuming at least a week. Everyone will be so ready to go home when the time comes. Many hugs to all of you!!
