Hannah update – What a day! Hannah had her chest tube taken out because her lungs remained stable. Unfortunately, we all anticipated that her pain would vastly improve after the removal, but we did not fully take into consideration the whole picture.
Hannah has roughly a ten-inch incision that extends from under her right arm to her back and on top of her scapula to her mid back. The swelling is quite intense and the pain is still hard to control. Her nurse and doctors have been diligently working again for a good balance to control pain, but not have her sedated 24/7. This is much easier said than done!
Until we can control her pain, Hannah will remain in the ICU. Hannah has definitely done her part today to fight through. She has walked twice, been bathed and sat in a chair for over 3 hours.
Please pray for my sweet baby girl!
