Jill Bug

Very awake...and still a little loopy!
My favorite nurse Krystalynn

Daddy I don't want my paci.

Jillian had several milestones today! She had her art line, chest drain, and pacing wires removed. She also kicked one of her IVs right out of her foot. She's feeling much better now that some of that stuff is out of her. They started her feeds today and she's tolerating them so hopefully her central line can come out tomorrow. Right now she's getting her formula through a feeding tube because she has to relearn to take a bottle. This was something that I hadn't even thought about, and was a little upset because we're just so ready for her to be out of the hospital. The doctors assure me that this is very normal for kids who have had big surgeries and had to be intubated for a significant amount of time. She did take her paci for a little while tonight, but then was acting like she couldn't figure out what to do with it. Much like when she was in the NICU, it should just click and then she won't turn back. Maybe tomorrow will be her day.
