Ginny had a big day today - not the biggest day she's ever had - but a big day. Yesterday she had a bedside swallow test. She didn't do very well, so we tried again this morning. She did great, sucking down 13 ml of milk in no time. She'll be the chugging champ of her sorority. Or NOT. She'll have one last study tomorrow with radiology before they let her loose on Mom's breasts.
Dr. Malhotra removed her chest tubes and pacing wires just a little while ago. We took the saturation monitor off her forehead and she doesn't need the nasal cannula anymore, so she has a few less lines. Soon we'll have the wireless version of Ginny Lee. We'll call her Ginny 2.0. We also gave her a bath and washed her hair. All this while she watched the Spain vs. Germany World Cup Semifinal.
Some of you know that Rachel is a big soccer fan. Me - not so much. Rachel insists that Ginny will be a soccer player. I think if God wanted us to play soccer, he wouldn't have given us arms. Sorry DW.
Tomorrow we're going to bring the grandparents in to see her for the first time since her surgery. We are still going to hold off on any other visitors for a while. I know everyone is anxious to meet her, but I hope you understand. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and support.
