Meredith did so great through her surgery. The surgeon planned on 2 hours and it ended up being about 3.5 hours long. He had the main OR Nurse call us about every hour to keep us updated on the progress.
The first words she said to us in the Pedi Recovery Room were, can we go home? We just looked at each other and chuckled...that's our girl!
She was up and walking to the potty by herself on Monday night, we've decided that nothing will hold her down. The only time she really woke up other than to potty on Monday was when my dad came to see her...she stayed awake most of the time and then he rocked her back to sleep.
They kept her on Toradol for a full 24 hours post surgery and she didn't really need any more morphine past about 2am, Tuesday morning. She was up on Tuesday and doing very, very well. All of her doctors were very, very pleased and we were too.
Last night was wonderful, she was generally waking up 5-7 times a night from reflux and would get in bed with us but last night she didn't wake up at all. We are hoping and praying that this means she's not refluxing anymore.
