Charlotte is settled in the CICU. She is doing pretty good. They gave her a dose of pain meds when she first came in the unit because she was wide awake, pulling at her lines, and kicking her feet.
Mike and I have been with her for about an hour. Her nurse is fantastic; she went over everything that we needed to know. Her cardiologist stopped up and we also spoke briefly with the surgeon. Everyone seems pleased with her progress.
Mike and his parents just went to get something to eat, I am pumping once again, and Kate and my mom are with Charlotte. When Mike gets back, we will switch and we'll find something to eat. I have yet to eat today, so I am starving!
They warned us that tomorrow will probably be the tough day pain wise. They will try and stay on top of it though.
It is so hard to see my baby like this, but I keep reminding myself that her broken heart is on her way to being fixed.
