Natalie had a better day today, and so did her parents.

She is stable. She had a CT scan this morning and her surgeons were VERY pleased with the results. Meaning they saw continued good blood flow and her damage from Saturday's blockage in the hepatic artery was minimal.

At this time, they can only guess that the reason for the blood loss yesterday was the heparin that they put her on to prevent further blood clots. Heparin is a blood thinner.

Her liver funstion tests continue to improve. Prayers are being answered. She is still "open" and will probably be until Friday.

I (Becca) got my JP drain out today WOOHOO!!! I am feeling 100% better than over the weekend. 6 days after surgery and I'm walking back and forth from the hospital to Kohl's house.
