While I was being stitched up, Jonathan got to go back to the stabilization room to see her a little more and even got to hold her sweet little hand.
In this picture, she's intubated (breathing tube) and has another tube in her mouth to suction out all the air and gunk from her stomach and intestines. This is to give her more room in her chest so her lungs can expand and hopefully start to function.
So that's where we are. Waiting on word from the NICU that Jonathan can come up to visit and talk with the docs to see what they're thinking about Bonnie. I'm feeling really good considering my major abdominal surgery about 4 hours ago, but I'm pretty sure they won't deem me mobile enough to zip around the hospital for a few more hours.
We're both so grateful that Bonnie looked so good at birth. I know there's a "honeymoon" period when CDH babies are first born, but we're just really encouraged right now. Please keep praying that she does well in the coming hours, days, and weeks. Thanks y'all.
