One more day!

Only one more day...until Olivia gets her new trach! Once they switch it out, the paralytic can go off and she can wake up! Yeah!
She's had a pretty good weekend thus far. She did have a bit of a bleeding issue yesterday. She needed a new stitch in her arterial line and she bled, and bled, and bled... So, she got some more platelets (which are a whopping 59,000 today). Otherwise, just a few little issues here and there, as usual - just to keep things interesting.

So when they "switch it out" tomorrow is that another surgical procedure or something they do bedside?? Either way, I'm praying that things will go smoothly. No more surprises Miss Olivia!!

So excited Olivia gets to start waking up tomorrow! Always in our prayers! :-)

We hope the surgery tomorrow brings Olivia one step closer to going home. (And we have our fingers crossed for the swift sale and quick purchase of said home. . .with at least one bedroom suitable for all things Barney).
