This has been day 1. They don't count the day of the surgery in counting days of the stay. Today was fairly fuzzy for me as they keep giving me this stuff that makes me kind of sleepy. This morning Mommy and Pop came to visit me, and I was a little awake for them. I tried to do my excited wiggles that they like, but I have alot of things stuck to me, so it was kind of hard. I did look at my Pop though when he was talking to me.
There's a tube in my mouth that is helping me breathe. They talked about trying to take it out today and let me breathe by myself. The doctor told Mom and Pop before the surgery that it would be day 3 or 4 before that would happen, so this was kind of exciting. They decreased the help that that machine was giving me with breathing, and I kept breathing just fine. Maybe I got too excited or something, because they said I had arrhythmia, which is when my heart has an irregular beating pattern for a while. So they had to turn on a pacemaker to help me. The nice nurses also put cold cloths on me to cool me down since my temperature got a little bit high. I didn't like this very much, so they showed me who's boss by giving me more of the stuff that makes me sleep hard. I guess they don't want me pulling out any of these tubes like I used to do with my NG tube. So now I'm dreaming again... maybe they'll take the breathing tube out tomorrow.
