Friday Morning Update

We had a good night.

Rachel was so cute last night, I was in our room putting some things away and she wandered into our room, crawled up into our bed, and snuggled beneath the covers. We watched TV in our bed for a while and just let her sleep with us for a while. We set the alarm for 1:00 which was when she could have her next dose of pain medication.

Around 11:00, she was moaning and tossing about a lot. When the alarm went off at 1:00 we got up. It was a bit of a struggle to get her to eat, but she gave up and sat smack dab in the middle of the kitchen floor and that is where Steven fed her some applesauce and we gave her some medicine. From that point, she went into her own bed and we all slept until close to 6:30am.

She did well at eating something this morning and taking more pain meds. We are trying to break her pain cycle and stay on top of giving her pain meds every 4-6 hours. Especially since her pain was so uncontrolled the first night.

The swelling around her hip incision is going down quite nicely. But her face continues to swell. Just below her right eye is so swollen it's almost shut. Her little face has gone through so much, it's no wonder it's as swollen as it is.

As for her nasal stents, she's stopped complaining about them!!! I know it's a result of all the prayers specifically for that. Thank You!

Yay! I'm so glad she's adjusting to the stents and that you all got some sleep last night.
