Claire has decided she's ready for tummy time! She doesn't roll off her belly very well, so I only let her stay on her tummy for short periods, but she loves not being stuck on her back all the time.
Sorry for the long absence, the 2 days in the PICU with NO sleep took longer to get over than I thought they would. Clarie is doing fabulous. She's got a ton more energy (which mean shorter naps...) but she is also eating better. She can finish a bottle much faster, and is usually eating more and more frequently. Her incision is healing beautifully and we'll be be ready to head to the pool to check out the splash park soon.
We had a cardio follow up and echo on Thursday and the Dr said her repair looked beautiful. Right after surgery they thought they saw a very small VSD, but on last week's echo they couldn't see it at all. So, either it was never there to begin with, or else it already healed closed. Claire is still on O2 while she sleeps, but I'm hoping her levels are better at her check up next week and we can get rid of the extra tubes!
I loved spending last week with Claire, but am ready to get back into the office for a couple of days this week. I'm not so good at this working from home thing....
