Abigail is off the ventilator already!
It’s hard to believe that after such a major operation she has progressed so quickly. She will probably stay in hospital for another 10 days as her progress is to be monitored closely. Her left lung is still just half the size of her right and it may also be harder for Alison to re-establish feeding after 5 days being fed without any effort being expended on Abigail’s part. She certainly has a taste for her mothers milk but so far it has been taken through a pipette.
