Home Sweet Home

We got home yesterday around noon and Olivia is doing excellently. She seems to have more energy than before the surgery and is awake more. The pain doesn't seem to be bothering her too much-- she hasn't been on anything for pain more than ibuprofen for the last three days. She is still on just the littlest pinch of oxygen, which we may eventually get rid of, but we can't be sure. The right side of her heart is still enlarged which could be still recovering from the surgery. We will know for sure when we do a repeat echo in a few weeks. Either way, she can be off the oxygen for 45min-1hr and still do really well, so if we go outside to play or something like that we can take her off the oxygen. She is supposed to be working on taking her nap now, but is finding it difficult with all of her renewed energy. Here are some pics from the last week
This is when she was still vented the day after surgery--Thursday.
This is from Sunday-the day after extubation. Some kind of goofy grin...
This is yesterday, waiting to go home and resting with daddy.
