Surgery is done & pictures...

Our surgeon met with us after the surgery was done at around 8:30. He said everything went great!! We had to wait until they had her all set up in her room in the CICU (cardiac intensive care unit). Getting her all set up can take a long time! Our surgeon thought it should be about 30-40 minutes, it ended up being 2.5 hours. So we finally got in to see her at about 11pm. She looked really good, at least compared to the first surgery. She is doing great. They already took her off the ventilator today and are getting ready to feed her right now! They are thinking she will go to the floor (as in out of the ICU) tomorrow. That's about all for now! Here are some pictures from yesterday. I will put one of her chest & tubes, so beware (her chest is closed, so it's not too bad!)


  1. sweet baby girl. I am glad to hear she is doing well. Keep us updated.

  2. Oh bless her heart! I will keep sending up prayers for you all. Hope she continues to do well.

  3. Oh Kiersten... Aili is precious, as always. I'm so glad that things are going well. (((Hugs)))

  4. Kiersten, sorry I missed your call, but so happy to see the pic's of Aili, and hear that all is going well. Things are fine here, Phoebe is so sweet, we love having her back for this time.
