Surgery went well

Claire's surgery went very well yesterday. We were able to see her about an hour and a half after the surgery started, so the wait wasn't too long. I was sad to see her on the ventilator and laying so still, but I guess this is a good warm up for her OHS in a few months.

She was taken off the vent around 10 am today, so just under 24 hours, which was what the Drs told us to expect. We tried to give her a bottle at her 1 pm feeding but she was still too tired to nipple, so the nurse inserted a NG tube and fed her that way. We'll try another bottle at her 5 pm care. Hopefully she'll be more awake for that one.

If everything goes well, we should be out of the hospital in a couple of days. All Claire needs to do is eat and pass her car seat test and we'll (finally) be on our way home!
