What A Champ!
Skylar just got out of surgery and she's such a champ! The surgery was just under two hours - she has a few incisions on her belly where they did the fundo and the g-tube is in place. The doctors thought she might have to be on assisted breathing coming out of surgery because of her SMA weakness, but she's able to breathe on her own just fine! Even though there's no respirator or bi-pap machine, they're keeping her in the PICU (pediatric intensive care unit) for the night just to be safe. We just saw her as she was wheeled by and she looks great - a little out of it because of the drugs obviously - but you would never know she just had a serious procedure done by looking at her face. Hopefully the pain medicine keeps her comfortable and she's able to handle fluids well with the new g-tube. Once she gets back up to the schedule we had her on at home, we'll be able to be released... I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the prayers!!!
