The hospital is closely monitoring Maeve to see if she continues to expel the fluid well - we hope the procedure is successful a second time around.
Brig says they will know more about the chances this afternoon or evening, and that's when she will call home to Mom and Dad - who have been given express orders (by yours truly) to pass on the information.
My sister has asked Mom and Dad to forgo an Atlanta visit for the time being - she and Steve have a good routine worked out involving this hospital business and would rather not upset the apple cart. Brig says it would make more sense to have our parents around when Maeve is downgraded to the "step-down unit." Right now Maeve is in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit with her very own nurse assigned to take care of her every need. We are praying she won't be so needy for much longer, but only time will tell.
Mom has bought Maeve a huge wardrobe of special clothing that is appropriate for Maeve's recovery - all cardigans and jumper type outfits that won't require Maeve to stretch or pull her arms up over her chest.
That little girl is going to be spoiled, and rightly so.
