Pffftttt... Woo hoo!

For those who are don't know what a pfffftttt is, let's just say it relieved a little pressure in Sophie's tummy, and a great deal of worry from the Doctor's and our minds. We were just sitting around making clothes pin dolls and Sophie announces, "Hey Mommy, I just tooted!". This was of course followed by a woo hoo from me, the childlife intern, then, as I made the grand announcement, the nurses, and residents. The surgeons were so happy the ordered her NG tube to be removed, and gave Sophie permission to begin passing clear liquids past her lips. Much to Sophie's delight, this included Popsicles!!! Yeah!

So, we are firmly on the road to recovery. We'll see how she does tomorrow. I'm sure it will be similar to today, but more active, playing with the other patients, doing arts & crafts, playing games, and just coping with the confinement. Maybe we'll even get outside for a few minutes to get some fresh air.

We're hopeful to go home this weekend. More updates tomorrow (and I hope pics too :). We've had a couple requests for visitors - we'd love to see you, but please call first so we can make sure we don't have too many people here at one time. We'll also be home for about a week after discharge, so you can visit at the house as well if you like, whatever is easiest.

Much love to everyone... PEACE.
