Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Notes from the Hospital

Leave a comment



We’re just back from the hospital where little Charlotte is stable and resting peacefully. Aside from an NG tube providing food, she is only on “things that beep,” as I put it, monitors on her vitals. Her own systems are functioning well and she’s a fighter.

We got to give her a bath tonight and Philippe is finally changing diapers. She’s a little peanut. So cute and easy that the PICU nurses are practically fighting over getting onto her schedule.

The update—surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning, first case. We expect to be at the hospital before 7 am to spend some more time with her before she is taken to the surgical suite. The surgery will take 4+ hours. We’ll be updated hourly by a nurse practitioner. Please keep our little Sprout in your thoughts as you start your week.
