All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

Kate continues to make good progress...she is keeping her stats up. She has been awake most of the day...guess she is makin' up for sleeping for 2 weeks. She is finally starting to get some rest this evening. It's been almost 10 hours off the tube...so we're getting closer.

Pretty girl....can't get enough pictures of my little girl off the tube. Here she is all snuggled in her blankie...lovin' on her bear...suckin' on her paci...arms not restrained...all clean after bath...dressed in a cute little outfit....gettin' in a few winks! It's a Good Day!

This evening around 6 she got her foley catheter (urine collector) out! Yeah...that is one less tube. Her nurse today, Jen, has had her several days now...even her post op day when she took great care of her. Jen gave her a great bath tonight that really calmed her down. We got her dressed (for the first time) in a cute little outfit, got her own soft blankie and she was good to go. Finally, our little pretty princess is dressed for the part.
Nurse Jen lovin' on Kate...after her afternoon bath! Congrats to Jen...she just got engaged last week!
Daddy reading Kate her favorite book! Sweet Dreams Little Girl!

So glad she finally got a good bath, less a few tubes! She looks great and especially looks comfortable. Sleep tight all!

Krista & Andy, I love your happy blogs! It just lifts me up to see the nice pictures of her - especially the one where she is hugging her bear.
And the cute outfit - soon
you will be heading towards Fort Wayne! Love, Judy &
