Day 3 after surgery

We walked in this morning to Claire being wide awake and smiling!  It was a great sight.  It let me know that she was feeling much more like herself.  We noticed that her heart rate was beating over the pacemaker this morning, which was good.  So at rounds, the doctors decided to take the pacemaker off and see what happened.  She did well most of the day without it.  There were a few times when Claire was totally asleep (with her mouth wide open!) that her heart rate would drop a little and the p waves would not show up.  They did an EKG earlier today that looked good though.

They also took the nasal cannula off today and she did great with that.  The nurse took the bandage off of her incision.  It hurt my feelings to see it.  I know it hurt so bad.  But the incision site looks pretty good. 

Tonight the nurse said she was still having a few episodes with no p waves so they are going to do another EKG tonight.  I hope it turns out ok.  They had to give her some pain medicine tonight around 7 pm so that is making her really tired and restful which can drop her heart rate.  So I am hoping things get better over night. 

Thank you for all of the prayers for Claire.  We really need and appreciate all of them!!!!
