We are grateful that things are going all right. Laura has a fever, but that is common after surgery. Her color looks good, and there are no scares yet. The next 24 hours are the most crucial as her heart tries to recover from being stopped while the repair was done. It is hard to see her upset when her eyes flutter open for bits of time. I think it is more stressful than we realize watching a recovering baby.
We are hoping to get some rest tonight and praying Laura will stay stable. If she does okay perhaps tomorrow we can get the ventilator out.
