Yes, Brenna Girl is Home Sweet Home!
Fortunately, I think the deciding factor for all of her symptoms last night ended up being her dangerously low blood sugar (for those of you in the medical field, it was 21...though that number doesn't mean anything to me, we're told that it's supposed to be in the 50s.) Once the staff began pumping her full of sugar, she perked up right away and even drank about 3 oz. of pedialyte on her own.
This morning, we began using Brenna's new feeding tube! We're sticking with 2-oz. feedings for today, and then increasing to 3 ounces tomorrow before we continue our upward trend.
Currently she is very puffy, especially her legs and feet, due to the crazy amount of fluids she received post-surgery, and she does seem a bit uncomfortable if the Tylenol wears off...so right now we're just trying to keep her as comfortable as possible while she heals from this whole ordeal.
Hopefully the weekend will be non-eventful as we get adjusted to using her new g-tube!
