Good news: The G-J went in just fine, and Julianna was a champ. No sedation needed. Our ambulance ride home was booked.
Bad: Twenty minutes before the scheduled departure, we became concerned about some of the fluids coming out of one of her tubes. The medical team was also concerned, and an X-ray was ordered.
Good: The X-ray showed that everything was in the right place. Second ambulance scheduled for later in the evening!
Bad: Twenty minutes before scheduled departure (again!) J started looking queasy. She retched and aspirated a little bit. Not going home today.
We hope that it was a tiny little aspiration. We hope that it happened because her system was a bit unsettled from recent events. We hope the tube works and that we can bring her home very soon.
We’re all disappointed. We’ve been through much worse, but it still stinks. I hate being confronted with her fragility.
So fragile. Our miracle.
