Post Op - Day 3+

Not altogether boring today. Good, bad and ugly. Good is that Emerson was able to start 1 ounnce breast milk feeds at 5 p.m. and that she promptly pooped. Bad is that she had congestion in top of lung cavity. Ugly is the pounding treatments that the respiratory therapists have to perform on her to loosen up the congestion. However,the treatments are working and the chest x-rays are clearer. Poor Emerson is now starving and waiting for that miniscule 1 ounce bottle every 3 hours. No sign of lymphatic fluid yet -- hopefully never!

I am so glad to hear that Emerson is doing so well - she is a trooper. I am sure it is very hard to have to watch her go through the treatments, she continues to be in my thoughs and prayers. Thank you so much for the continued updates.

When the going gets tough you just have to all hang in there! I pray tomorrow will be a better day and that Emerson can start eating regularly again.
