Nothing too interesting...

to report. Aili is still doing great. There weren't really any changes from yesterday to today. She was less swollen today and less cranky because of it. It takes the body a few days to a week to adjust to how the heart is now. Because of that usually the upper half of the body swells, which can causes headaches. So she is doing good and is much happier. The occupational therapist (OT) came in today to see how Aili is feeding. She is doing great with that; suck, swallow, breathe : ). She wasn't as vigorous as usual, but that is to be expected after surgery. So the OT is going to come by tomorrow and feed with her again to see how she is doing.

Clay had to go down to Fort Lewis today to do some paper work, so the kids and I hung out at the hospital all day. Tealia & Jim (Andy's Dad) came by and visited with us, which was nice. Otherwise we just kind of hung out, played outside, did school work, etc.

Here is a picture of Aili from today...


  1. Aili looks really good in these photos! Do I see a little smile? She is so tough! Bless her little heart.
    Love GE

  2. Way to go Aili!!! You are in our thoughts and prayers every day. You are a strong little girl!

  3. Aili, You're amazing and I can't wait to meet you. We love you - all of you. Auntie Linda
