Everyone says she looks great and we'd have to agree. :) We were expecting Julianne to be pretty fussy as we'd heard that after the Glenn babies are more fussy because it causes headaches. She's actually been even less fussy than she was before her surgery. She's not even on any "hard drugs", just Tylenol and Motrin.
Julianne been working on drinking bottles too. She took 15-20ML on 4 different occasions already. Today hasn't been so great with the bottle drinking, but we're working on it. We are totally excited that she hasn't thrown any of them up. She will have a swallow study later this week to reevaluate whether or not she needs an NJ tube or an NG tube. We're hoping that the NG tube will be the verdict.
Julianne's heart rate has been normal and has continued on Captopril She will be started on a new medication called Plavix tomorrow. This is to help prevent blood clots. She will have an echo on Monday to check out how her heart is doing.
Thank you for all your prayers for our little button. We thank God everyday for Julianne and for how she's improved! Please continue to pray for her, as we know you will.
Finally, today was our 6 year anniversary. Jessica's parents stayed with Julianne while we went out to eat to celebrate what has been a very special year! It was nice to leave "hospital land" for a little while tonight. :)
