Post Op - Day 1+

Emerson is breathing on her own!!!!! Our little girl was starting to wake up, so the pediatric cardio-intensivist (Cardiac ICU doctor) decided to take out the breathing tube as opposed to giving her more sleeping medicine. It all happened rather suddenly and surprisingly. We held OUR breaths while Emerson breathed like a champ. Her blood gases are great, which is a huge relief and a big milestone in her recovery. She's still on pain medicine, which will thankfully keep her good and groggy. It is so good to see her moving and her eyes open :)
