Lucy had a really rough night last night. She had a horrible time emptying her bladder, so around 11:00 pm the nurse came in to do a Foley. I think it must have scared Lucy enough that she finally went a tiny bit. It wasn't enough, but it kept the cath away. Lu finally asked to pee in the bed (which meant a bed pan) and after that she was much more comfortable. We did have to wake her every 2 hours to make her potty. Then, on top of that, her vein blew where her IV had been placed and it took 2 nurses and 3 sticks to get another stared at 4:00 am. We finally got some sleep between 5-9am.
Today started off better, but she was in a lot of pain from her surgery. The Dr. had warned us that due to the fact that she was so skinny, she would probably be in a little more pain than the normal child. Imagine that, Lucy being anything but "normal." But her pain was well maintained and she managed to spend some time playing on the computer and playing with her sticker book.
