Hospital Day 2 - Surgery complete

Kayla is out of surgery and in a recovery room now.

 We got to see her for about 10 minutes.

We did see her wake up for a bit.  She kept trying to pull the nasal cannula out that gives her oxygen.  They gave her morphine to reduce pain.
We had a rough night after surgery.  Kayla was bleeding too much from her chest tubes.  She had to have blood, plasma and platelet transfusions. The doctor told us he was sorry and that she would most likely need surgery again to stop the bleeding. When doctors say they are sorry, it has not been a good thing. As a last resort they gave her Factor VII.  Then we waited for hours. The bleeding slowed down some and we fell asleep hoping tomorrow would be better.
