Mila slept very well last night. She still isn't eating great, but definitely eating more than she was before we got here. She is pretty fussy when awak, mixed with a few smiles. Her breathing still hasn't returned to normal so I had worries prior to the echo. They just did the echo and were hoping to see no re-accumulation of fluid but there was a small amount of fluid on the right side of the heart that wasn't there after the procedure yesterday :( They tried to drain it through the tube they left in, but only got 2cc's. The fluid seems to be in a pocket that the drain can't reach. They're hoping the anti-inflamatories they're giving her will take care of the fluid by reducing the inflamation. She looks a little puffy around the face and neck so they are going to restart her lasix. This all means the drain will have to stay in until at least tomorrow when they do the next echo. It is pretty uncomfortable for Mila and it hurts her when we pick her up, so we requested a better bed that she'll be a little more comfortable in since she isn't tolerating being held much. I would request morphine but that seems to make her itch so bad it isn't even worth it. It's going to be a long day ahead I have a feeling. We just want to see our girl healthy and happy.
Shawn and Zoya are going home today. Through this all, Zoya has developed an aversion to her carseat (I don't blame her) so that might make the ride home a little rough for Shawn. Please pray for our family.
