Perched on Mama's lap...a little sleepy at only 6:15 AM
All dressed for surgery
Silly girl rolling her eyes (probably at Pastor Kraig!)
Granny comes bearing gifts from afar (Pennsylvania!)
Breathing treatment (she was as happy as a clam with Granny holding her)
And she's off to see the surgeon!
Now in PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit)
Yesterday Madeline was pretty sleepy most of the day, waking only to wimper, sign cup, and get more morphine. She drank lots of water and generally looked at us like, What did they do to me?? She ran a high fever which Dr. Didelot said is completely normal for spina bifida kids. Evidently the since so many of her nerves are dead, they cannot tell the brain that there is inflammation, so anything this huge causes high fevers especially at night for around three days. Last night she was running a fever up to 103.
