Yesterday when we left the hospital Livi was doing exceptionally well. This morning when we got here she was doing pretty well. Sometimes the second day is the hardest. She is still intubated (on the ventilator) and trying to rest. Really her breathing is not the problem--they are keeping an eye on her blood pressures to make sure they are stable. She spiked a couple of fevers last night but came right down with meds. I have an overwhelming amount of information that seems technical now, so suffice it to say she is still doing pretty well considering what happened to her yesterday. She may not get off the ventilator today, but not because she couldn't, but she might need more rest and pain meds. We have not seen her eyes because she is resting, but we hold hands with her a lot and she squeezes them really hard--she knows we're there.
Thanks for the prayers and I will update as I can and as things happen (or don't). Thought pictures might be out of the question right now, but if she is looking better later today will at least take some. The swelling isn't horrible, but no one looks great after that trauma, not even beautiful Olivia.
