"I'm ready to eat and go home"
Alex is doing great. She was up at 4:30am this morning asking the nurse for a juice box and to order her some food. She wanted to take her bipap mask off and was ready to get the day started. I had to explain it was still dark out and way too early to be up. She did fall back asleep, however we were up again at 5:30 and again at 6:30 and finally up for good at 7am. Pretty typical night when you stay in the hospital. If you can get any block of sleep throughout the night, we consider it a good one.
When one of the surgeons came in this morning she asked him if he brought her a Barbie. She's is definitely feeling like herself and chatting it up with anyone and everyone who walks by her door, which she insists on leaving wide open. There's talk of her going home later today too. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers, they are much appreciated!
