Day Three

We arrived back at the hospital around 8 a.m. feeling more rested than the previous night and a little more relaxed about everything happening. The doctors made there rounds that morning and decided to aggressively turn down her meds and they planned on taking the vent out . She was moving toward the right direction for surgery. Later that day they took the vent out and started giving her bottles shortly after that. Now she was a happy baby. That night we had to stay in the family lounge. We were trying to get a room at the Ronald Mcdonald house but they were full. We would try again tomorrow. The family lounge is a very interesting place. There are quite a few people that stay. Every night people grab a pillow and blanket and stake out there area to sleep. Your options are a recliner, a bench that is slightly padded, or the floor.  Around midnight the lights are dimmed and everyone tries to sleep. I told Jason it felt like an adult lock-in. We chose the bench to sleep on. We would wake up in the middle of the night to change positions because our body was going numb. The morning could not come fast enough.
