Day two

Madeleine is doing much better. She had a rough night and had trouble breathing but was finally able to sleep after about one am. They recently took her off of the pain meds, and she is only on a little sedation now and antibiotics. The surgeon wants her to stay for one more night in PICU because it was such a big surgery. He also doesn't want her to eat anything yet to give her body a chance to futher heal, so that the bowels don't have to start working yet.

No news on the tumor pathology yet.
