Reiss has settled in to the CICU. She is in a lot of pain and is breathing funny – partly because she is probably holding back since her chest hurts and partly because her throat is swollen from the breathing tube. They will be monitoring that closely over the next 12 hours to see of she needs help breathing. Other than that, she is doing well. She has some drainage tubes that are coming out from under her rob cage. Once those are out – hopefully by tomorrow – we can scoop her up and cuddle. Please pray the pain meds can make her comfortable as her little body tries to heal.
