More progress

With a bit of effort, Brea did seem to sleep last night (with a few interruptions).  With that, she seems much more positive this morning.  She is still far from herself, but at least appears to be moving in the right direction.  She has been doing some eating (mostly yogurt) and drinking a bit of milk.   She is also interested in reading books again.

More good news is that it appears that we may be moving off the ICU and to the general pediatric cardiac ward.  It is supposed to happen today once they are happy with a couple more things.  They also took one of her drains out today (the central drain) so that is another positive sign.  The next steps are to try and get her moving once her arterial and central lines are removed.  She is quite congested and they hope that moving will help her to cough/clear a lot of that.
