Yesterday afternoon we got to leave ICU and go upstairs to the Heart Center!!!! Laura is getting back to her old personality with lots of smiles. She had to have a PIC line inserted into her arm yesterday to replace the central line in her neck. That was very traumatizing for her (she was awake) but hopefully she'll get over that soon.
Up here at the Heart Center things are much more relaxed. We have a nice room with our own bathroom, plenty of room for sitting and cabinets for keeping our things. We are not getting any "time" out of anyone as to when we can think about heading home. Hopefully it won't be too long.
Laura is taking a bottle now!!! She has previously refused them. She's working on endurance to take her entire feeds, but we are glad she is doing so well. Thanks for your continued prayers for us.
