I was so overjoyed to have this precious moment. You may wonder why Myla never has on a gown, well, the long and short is she hates them! Any time we could get one on her in PICU, when she would wake up, the first thing she would do is rip it off and anything else she could find. Many attempts at the heart monitors, pulse ox, and IV. That is why she has on the little white and yellow splint-to keep her other hand from pulling IV out.
She then went for a wagon ride to the playroom down the hall. Although there weren't a lot of smiles, I know she was glad to get out of her room. Especially since her siblings, Daddy, and Aunt Angie were with her!Well, the fun went down hill from there and it really had nothing to do with her back or getting her up. She was very tired and I think she has had bouts of itching from her pain medication. She had one last night and ordered Benadryl-but it took forever to get up to the floor. She ate pretty good, but then had some bizzare blister on her tongue. An hour and a half later she calmed down and went into a good deep sleep. Thankfully the night time sleep was very good with only two interuptions and she went back to sleep withing 20 minutes of the nurses leaving.
