Yesterday Jessica wasn't too excited to have another procedure to insert tubes in her lungs. She kept asking to do puzzles instead. Chandra promised she could do her puzzles right when the doctors were done. After the tubes were inserted and Jessica was coming out of the sedation Chandra told her they could go back to her room and do puzzles. Before they left the recovery room Chandra and the doctors were talking and Jessica piped in, "Hey Guys, did you know I'm really good at puzzles?" It is so sweet to hear about her personality shining through even the tough times. The tube insertion was successful and 1/2 a liter of fluid was immediately drained from her lungs.
She has been very happy today and even smiled for a few pictures. With all the tubes and machines you will have to look closely for her beautiful smile. She was practicing her breathing with a pinwheel and showing off her newly painted fingernails.
