Although I think I could have tolerated the poor sleeping surface had it not been for the doors shutting, carts being wheeled, nurses laughing and other hospital noises occurring directly outside Brenna's room all night, which allowed me to get probably about an hour or two of good sleep. Thankfully, my husband is amazing and told me to go home and nap this morning.
Anyway, I digress.
Finally this afternoon we received word that Brenna's g-tube surgery is officially scheduled for 7:30 a.m. tomorrow. We are grateful to be the first surgery - both because she will not get to eat for 8 hours beforehand, and because that means the surgeon likely won't be running behind.
The GI nurse came in today and taught us all about the tube, how it works, how to use it, how to clean it and answered our questions about both the tube and the surgery.
All systems are a go.
By this time tomorrow, Brenna should be eating again and working her way up to "full feeds". And soon she will be packing on the pounds and growing stronger every day!
She got a little spa time today before her surgery tomorrow :)
After bath time, she was the most content she's been since arriving at the hospital - smiling, cooing and relaxed
Then I walked with her around the pediatrics floor for a while because she seemed to be feeling a little cooped up, and she spent some time in the bumbo seat...
Hoping she sleeps well tonight and that everything goes smoothly tomorrow. We're off to bed so we can head back to the hospital bright and early!
