We had a restless night from the incessant beeping of the IV machines, but nevertheless, Joni is feeling better today. The surgeon visited us this morning and upgraded Joni to "Full Liquids" which is a big step up from "Clear Liquids". Hopefully, these meals will have more taste and satisfy her hunger better. The doctor also ordered some medicine to help her digestion system get going again. Overall, he was very pleased with her progress.
Hannah Jane came to visit her mommy yesterday and is as beautiful as ever. Joni got to give her a bottle and cuddle with her for a few brief hours. It was very hard to say goodbye, but Joni says that being able to hold her was worth the pain of knowing Hannah couldn't stay here. We are still looking at being here until Friday at least so that they can fill her full of antibiotics to make sure the infection doesn't return.
Well, we are about to exercise some by walking around which is a great sign. I'd better get out of the way...Joni's multiple IVs, tubes, etc, make us quite the entourage! Thanks for your prayers, and please continue to pray for a speedy recovery!
