Went well! Emma is doing better with pain control and had her last dose of Torodol (IV pain meds) at 2pm. She had Capitol with Codiene earlier in the day and at 7pm was doing great still. She is active now and thinks the foot of the bed should be the head. She likes to prop her feet up on the inclined 'head' of the bed and cross her legs-- such a little prissy girl ;) She's watched Nemo, Cinderella, and Sesame Street a few times over and listened to the Spinoza CD a dozen times. She doesn't seem to get tired of any of them though! Emma's eating close to the same as at home pre-op, and is calming much easier after having anyone touch her or do anything to her (which to me means the pain is more manageable). When they took out the drain tube today I was amazed as TWELVE INCHES of tubing was removed from her chest. SERIOUSLY!! She tolerated it so well though and I am amazed at her strength and determination. She's got spunk!
Kristopher insisted that Elmo needed to come with Emma to the hospital and though it didn't come the first day or two (she had a lot of things there and wasn't really playing), Emma was really glad that Kristopher thought to pack Elmo for her today! She played with him a lot, chewed on him a bit, and threw him at Mom or the nurses a few times as well :)
She's also sucked her thumb a lot the past few days and chewed bibs until they're completely saturated, so I guess she's using her comforters to make things work-- which is just fine with me. I prefer a soggy bib to grinding teeth any day, and a moist thumb to the WHOLE HAND as well.
Pictures saying "bye bye!" tomorrow :) :)
