Aspen was just released from CICU to Children's Surgical Floor, one stop from coming home.
She finally ate solids and nursed really well with mom. They removed two of her important pic lines, the arterial line in her thigh, and the line in her neck. The next big hurdle for Aspen is the removal of the Chest Tube, which is still collecting fluid. The doctor's say they may be able to remove it tomorrow, if so they watch her for 24 hours and if all is well, she may be able to go home over the weekend.
