Daily Dose: Wednesday, March 25
Hope had another very restful and recovery filled day. Everyone is very excited at how well she is recovering from the big surgery. Today her nurse said that Hope is exhibiting the "best case scenario"!!! Hope's surgeon came and checked on her and said he thinks she is "coming out of the woods".
Hope hasn't gotten very puffy, which they expected her to, and the fluid she has retained she has been steadily peeing off. Hope's heart rate continued to be back down in the normal range and her blood gasses were all good. Her chest x-ray showed that she was a little under-inflated, but after she was repositioned that helped and it got better.
Hope is obviously retaining some fluid, which might possibly be skewing her weight, but she weighed in today as the biggest fatty FOR SURE!!! She weighed in at 2390 grams, which is 5 pounds 4 ounces!!!! That's right, over 5 pounds!!! Way to go biggest fatty!!!
