No more tubes!
Lia's last chest tube came out and the only thing she has hooked to her now is her telemetry box that monitors her heart. No IV's, no tubes, no needles and this box is just attached with five small leads so it isn't painful. She looks like a little pin cushion, with bruises and holes all over her little body. She had an xray this morning and the doctor said it all looked good and they were very pleased with her progress. We will be at the hospital just a little longer and they will do another xray and bloodwork on Sat. morning. If it looks good we will be going HOME! We couldn't have asked for a better place to be for her surgery, but we are more than ready for a FULL nights sleep in our own bed.
