7/3/12 from about 8am to 12pm

A date and time I will never forget.

It was when Pooka had emergency surgery to take out her appendix and fix an intestinal malrotation.

She had a congenital defect, we thought it was IBS.

Surgery went well. She is on the mend. I praise God.

Her medical team says she can be here 3 to 7 days.

She hates the NG tube. Hopefully she will do the things she needs to do tomorrow to get that removed. My fingers are crossed.

I hate that I can't give her water when she asks me for it. I will give her the biggest, coldest cup of water I can create once she is cleared to drink.

She has been sleeping the majority of the day. I don't mind because her body needs to focus on healing. Nothing really here to do now at 3:45am but continue to watch her sleep and plink around on the wifi.

Being in a hospital as a PT is completely different than being in a hospital for this...

I caught this late but I'm glad that Pooka is doing better. That sounds so crazy.
