Mad continued to vomit today so the doctor decided to replace the N-G tube. You can see it in the second picture. This tube is clearing her stomach because her bowels aren't ready to work yet. The doctor felt that PICU just pulled the line too early. I know this is all to be expected with such a long surgery, but I can't help but feel that it's a step backwards. She can't eat until probably Monday, but she doesn't seem hungry. Her pain is being managed with morphine. She had a little fever this evening but it was starting to decrease before I left the hospital, hopefully that will continue.

Her body has important recovery things to work on, I'm sure she'll be chowing down soon :)
If there's anything you need (albeit from afar), just let us know.
