Stable

After they gave her a blood transfusion they measured her hemoglobin again and it shot up to 11.7. Good numbers but that was right after the transfusion so the numbers were a bit skewed. They're going to monitor her closely and take labs again at midnight and 6 am. I called Jeannine at 10:30 pm and she said Jovee was stable and doing good; she even got up and peed in the toilet. I left at 9 pm and she was still sleeping. Dr. Thorne said that her blood pressure was looking good. They considered operating on her, patching up the bleeding in the liver if things didn't become stable. There would have been another scar about 3 inches long if they would have operated. What's another battle scar when you have a billion? Well, not a billion but you know...
I forgot the digital camera and camcorder. I usually bring it. Today would have been a good day to have it, for memories sake. Man, I can't believe how white she looked. Almost a full blooded caucasian instead of a half Asian girl. My prayers tonight is that she's comfortable and will sleep peacefully. I was thankful that all the doctors and nurses worked so expediently and cohesively today. To think that it was just supposed to be an outpatient procedure today. This afternoon's experience definitely ranked as the scariest moment with Jovee.
