In case you have no idea what CHD looks like, what CHD does to a baby, I am posting the ugly truth ~
because as they say,
a picture is worth a thousand words.
and although it is so very very very hard to have to see your baby through something like this,
I can still see the beauty of her being, CHD is not Alexa, it is only a part of her.
To us, beneath all the wires and tubes, she is still just our baby. Our innocent and beautiful princess.
Now, on why I am still awake at this late hour ~ well, although Lexi is currently asleep, she has been trying to wake and even sit up every now and then. She gets pretty agitated when she wakes up and realizes she has a tube down her throat and of course wants to pull it out. So hubby and I are taking turns staying up by her bedside. She has an awesome nurse, Larry, who has been taking great care of her. Docs are thinking of pulling out the breathing tube soon, as soon as they know she will be fully awake. She is receiving very little help from the machine and is acutally breathing over it and her blood gases are good so they are confident she is ready. Hopefully it will be soon, although I am glad she is resting and if she keeps sleeping till morning then they will just let her rest. So we shall see. Also just wanted to say thanks to my family that was able to come down and spend this loooong day with us, it definately helped to have you here. And to those that were not able to be here, we understand and could still feel your support. Please keep praying for a smooth and speedy recovery for Alexa. Thanks and good night (morning).
