It has been almost 12 hours since Mya started her surgery this morning! What a crazy 12 hours it has been! She did wonderful during her surgery and is recovering well.
The surgery itself only took a little over an hour, but we had to wait in the recovery room until about 3:30! But the wait was worth it! Matt, Mya, and I have a private room! I guess the unit is full....so at least for the night we have the room to ourselves!
She has now had two feedings through her new feeding tube. We are starting out to only give her 2 oz every 3 hours and will continue that for the rest of the night. So far she is tolerating them pretty well. She has not had any vomiting. She gets fussy with the feeds, but she is very sore from the surgery. I think with time it will improve! Tomorrow if she is doing well we will increase her feedings to her normal amount.
Her doctor said we would either come home late tomorrow or possibly on Saturday. (Depending how well she does) We are adapting pretty well to the new tube. It is very similar to her old NG tube. Matt and I would like to thank all our family and friends for all their support! I don't know where we would be without you all in our lives!! Mya is so special to us!!
Wait until you see her without her NG tube in...she is even more beautiful than before!! A special thanks to all the people who made the trip to Indy to see her!! We love you all!
