Happy Belated Holidays

Hey all-

Sorry for the lack of posts over the holidays- it was hectic. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy New Year.

Where to begin? Elena enjoyed the holidays. Thankfully, Christmas was quiet and New Years was a little rocky but semi-quiet. She is comfortable and stable at the moment. She had a surgical procedure on Tuesday Dec. 30th which she took like champ. The doctors and nurses said it might take her 24 hours to come out of anesthesia (just to be on the safe side so parents don't lose it if it takes that long), but Elena is gangster. Within 4 hours she was moving around.

The surgery was to close a heart vessel that should be open at her age. With the vessel closed she should get better lung and kidney function - yay! So on Friday the attending physician said she only has the "disease" of prematurity. She needs to grow and get better and that's it. So grow Elena.
