Right after surgery

We are now in our room (#241 @ Rady's Children's Hospital) and Avery is on Demerol and Morphine and is resting comfortably. She is already showing some swelling, but we've been told it is going to get much worse before it gets better. During surgery she did need some blood transfused. She also needed a lot of IV fluids because her blood pressure was really low (likely due to the Propranolol). She is eating well. We will likely be discharged on Friday, however it is all dependent on how the swelling goes.


  1. So glad to hear the surgery was a success and she's out of the it. Praying for a fast recovery and little swelling. Poor little girl but she's so strong and is obviously your little rockstar. Best wishes!

  2. She is still such a beauty! Im glad to hear shes doing well, hope you and the hubbie are doing good as well =)

  3. She looks great Sheila! So happy everything went well and we are thinking of you all in the next few days (also, let us know if you need anything at all). xoxo - Erin, Danny & Makenna
