Lucy is in recovery in the ICU this evening and I am sitting by her bed, keeping vigil. She is in a lot of pain and is extremely nauseated. She has a 4-5" suture running from the base of her neck to the middle of her head. She also has at least a 6" suture down her spine. The areas really look like frankenstein. I can't even begin to image how badly she hurts. She has a titanium plate in her head now and will have some pretty nasty scars to show off one day. I only wish there was some way to convey how strong my baby is being. It's really amazing. I think I would be a whiny mess! I just keep staring at her and thanking God for every breath she takes.
I think this next picture of the monitors sums up how I feel right now. One big, blurry, ugly mess. But you know, its not about me. I forget that sometimes and want to have a pity party, but this all about my Lu-bear. It will be for a long, long time.
