Update

Ok, sorry I haven't been so great with the updates the las 24 hours - she has been very busy with visitors and projects. Leigh, Matt finally got things planted!

Riley has been doing FANTASTIC!!!! She's been up, moving around, visiting with her "fan club" that came yesterday, sleeping on her belly.....you name it, she's been doing it.

Today, we were supposed to be discharged from the hospital, but because of the "mistake", we will probably be here until later Tuesday afternoon.

Her vomiting has gotten less and less everyday. That always help the recovery time - ya know, when you don't feel like dung!

I do believe her appetite is also back. She has been wanting to eat everything under the SUN! I can't keep up! :-)

For tomorrow, surgery will be at 7:30 and last 1.5 hours from start to finish.
I will be speaking with a patient advocate this morning and a social worker to figure things out. Thanks all of you for your input.

I will post again this afternoon - with pictures.

I'm so glad you're talking to someone about the mistake. Doctors are human too, but to make yourself heard so that this doesn't have to happen again is important! Good luck!

Glad Riley is feeling better, and I'm glad she liked her card :) Made my day to know she liked it

I'm glad to hear Riley is perking up!

Isn't it amazing how quickly kids rebound?! I hope she stays happy & entertained. And well fed! Glad to hear she has an appetite!

Hi Riley and Cindy,
I hope everything goes perfectly perfect during Monday's surgery. I am sorry that Riley has to experience a surgery again. Tell her that Jake is doing well. He will be happy to see her again when she gets home. Take good care!
