Today Jovie continued to do well but she was awake more and upset. They are slowly wheening her off several things to get her ready to be able to move her out of the ICU and into the step down unit. We are hopeful that could happen tomorrow. 

She was able to finally drink something and was so happy to get something real, but she threw up ): it was pitiful because as you can imagine it hurts. 

She was peaceful for most of the day but she had a few difficult times. She was getting mad tonight because she didn't like lying there with all the wires and things everywhere, and then she'd cry and kick and that would hurt her so she'd cry because it hurt and I was doing my best to comfort her but I can't pick her up, and that's what she wants, so that would make her mad too. Very hard to see her upset and not be able to do anything. I pray she sleeps well through the night tonight.
