Yesterday, the chest tubes, pd cath,and pacer wires came out. Apparently it will still be a while for the arterial line.
After the surgery, chest closure and extubation, I expected things to be much easier around here. The problem is, now in addition to healing Will's heart, we are experiencing all of the non-sedated baby "problems" as well. I hate that when Will is crying, I can't pick him up. When he is exhausted and can't sleep, I can't rock him. When the nurses are peeling bandages off and it hurts him, I can't hold him. I can't wait for this to be over. Seeing Will upset kills me inside, because I know there is so little I can do.
That's all for now.
