The night went pretty well all in all.  Hailey's a little crabbier today, but is doing very well still.  She just ate a big bagel with cream cheese (her first significant food).  She's waiting patiently to see her big sister and her cousins (she's been asking for "Faithy" since yesterday).  Bottom line, we're on pace to go home tomorrow.  She'll be lying low for a week at least, but things seem to be heading in the right direction.  I've been reading many of your messages to Hailey and they have made her smile.  Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.  You all give us incredible strength.

Hopefully I don't jinx anything here, but Hailey is doing really well right now.  After the first couple hours of a lot of crying and tantrums, she has settled down and is acting just like her old self.  She is calm, eating and drinking, saying funny things, and seems to be generally fine.  Her head and her tubie area are sore, and she hates all the chords hooked to her, but even those things don't seem to be bothering her at the moment.  We are definitely heading in the right direction and things are going about as well as we could have hoped at this point.  Lets hope we can say the same thing tomorrow after the rest of tonight.

Hello All:

Hailey was taken to surgery at 1:15pm. We received an update that her feeding tube is already in place and that the surgery went well. Dr. Iskandar began his procedure at about 1:45pm. His procedure should take about 1 1/2 to 3 hours.

We'll keep you posted.

 Thanks for the prayers!
