Saturday Morning Update
When Sarah slept last night she slept very well. The difficult part is that she is taking all her meds by mouth now and she is having trouble keeping them down. She either has thrown them back up or they give her a stomach ache. She has been a trooper taking them although she doesn't want to and tells me to "throw them away". Due to the fact she has this stomach ache she doesn't want to eat much. We try and remind her that her belly will feel better with food in it. She did take a couple bites of bagel and cream cheese this morning and had a few sips of prune juice (to try and help in that department). Part of the team came in to evaluate Sarah this morning. They were going to take the drain out of her head today; however, their are small pockets of fluid near her ears. They are keeping the drain in for today as well to try and get rid of some of this fluid. They are also going to put on a wrap around her head to put pressure along the surgical site to try and get rid of some fluid. Here are a few pictures of Sarah from today and a picture of Mimi rocking Sarah yesterday. We are very thankful for all the help we have received from our parents in many ways. We miss Jason so very much but know that he is and has been in good hands.
