Surgery Update

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update... Hope's surgery went well yesterday. She tolerated the anesthesia and surgery well. They finished up around 8:00pm and Hope was settled back into her bed by 8:30. As of 10:30 last night the anesthesia had started to wear off and she was starting to act a bit uncomfortable. Her nurse gave her a dose of morphine and a dose of valium. Once she settled down, she slept well through the night. Her blood gasses are looking very good and she wasn't on any additional oxygen as of this morning.

Thank you to everyone for all the warm thoughts and prayers. We are all so relieved that she did so well.


  1. I'm glad it went well. Hopefully you see results from the fundo very soon. *hugs*

  2. Hello
    This is Jonathan Norem's mom Ashley,from Memorial and then Riley's. First off, I am very glad that her surgery went well. I am glad to see that she will be going home soon. She truly has come a long way. I remember the night that we came down here that it was nice to see a friendly face from somewhere back home and to have someone to relate to. Just to give an update on Jonathan, he also got a trach and will be moving to infant ICU. I just wanted to say congrats and good luck!! Tell Hope that we miss her. We also miss the daily updates from her grandma and grandpa.
    P.S. She is beautiful!!
