This past week was very eventful for Anna Catherine and she is doing extremely well.
Her big surgery was last Tuesday and a great success. After such a big event the doctors put her back on the ventilator so she could rest and focus on healing. One week later her lungs have recovered to the point where the doctors feel comfortable weening her off the ventilator down to the vapotherm system. This is a positive step in the right direction.
Yesterday the surgeon ran some scheduled tests to see how Anna Catherine is healing. He reports that everything is looking good. Therefore he removed her chest tube which means Mommy can hold her again.
Anna Catherine now weighs a big 6 lbs 1 oz and is a 19 inches long!
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers,
