Updates for Day 3 after surgery

Sunday, June 21, 2009

1127:
I am proud of my little girl again! The bed next to us whom has completed op days earlier than char is still having morphine of 1ml/hr. Whereas our princ4ess has already reduced her morphine to 0.8ml/hr since yesterday noon!. I was worried about her non response and told Dr Chiu. He said since she's too sleepy, we'll cut the painkiller. She's been feeling more pain and cried slightly throughout the night butshe managed to hold the pain, waking every now and then in pain. Hopefully she can tolerate the pain as we continue to wean her off. Its been confirmed that she has an allergy to IV Paracetamol. Was red like lobster. the nurses are changing shift and passing report now. In ICU, the doctors would term pple like me as "naturally anxious parents"! Char's oxygen is still below acceptable though. She cries of hunger and thirst. I hope today, we can have more improvement. Gonna ask doc on the blood I saw in her urine.

I am a very happy and relieved mommy now! We removed her urinal catherer this morning at 11am and I've been so worried that she wont be able to urine herself. we tried once with a bed pan at 1ish and she was in such pain and cried. Dr Chui just visited us at 3pm and ordered her feeding tube to be removed. And guess what! After 2 sips of water, she decided to try again with a potty on the floor. And she did it!She sat herself upright when i carried her onto the floor! =D

1704:
By the way its the first time since op that she smiled today! And a number of times! =) We blew bubble as part ofpost op rehab to exercise her lungs.

**
I just got back from the hospital and our princess is really fond of making miracles! She is now back to her feisty self, and she's been playing all the while. =) I have a few photos that will upload later.

Thanks for everyone prayers! She is recovering very well.

Photos:
On top of her head, was the cute stone cat that acts as a weight to the balloon. She was playing with the cat and decided to put it up on her head. So adorable is she, that I had to took a photo of her.
She keep saying, "See, no drop!"
And cheeky princess had to do this smile when the camera is in front of her.

.

"I want to take photo of this mask"
And happily, she took the Oxygen Mask, placed it over her, and looked straight, pretending that she needed that. Of cos, the glee over her face... she is our feisty princess after all.

Char is such a brave girl... she is an inspiration to all of us.

Cyn mummy: I am sure the nurses understand your anxiety, be gentle on them ok....=) and remember to rest, we would want you to be in the best state of health when u leave for NY.

My family and I will be praying for a full and rapid recovery for Char... and doing all we can to offer support.

Char: though we had never met, we are all proud of you...

It is very easy to call Charmaine a brave girl when most of us have little idea of the pain she went through as a young child.. I wish you could transfer some of your pain to me, it has been the toughest time for your mummy as well. Cyn and Charmaine, fight on! DON'T GIVE UP!
