Wide awake and so beautiful

This afternoon, I saw Maryana for the first time since our exciting trip to the emergency room last week. What a difference just a few days makes! I found her sitting up in her bed in the ICU, watching videos on her mom’s phone.

Her lips and fingers are no longer blue and she’s already full of energy just one day after surgery. Her mom brought out a toy for her and she loved taking apart all the pieces and dropping them one by one out of her bed.

Maryana is doing very well after surgery. The doctors removed her oxygen support this morning and her oxygen saturation was 97%–much higher than Thursday’s 9%!

It was so good to get to know Maryana a little better today, especially now that she’s feeling so much better. She has the most beautiful eyes and an adorable grin, which she reluctantly agreed to show off for a photo.
