11:47AM CST It has been an eventful morning! Tia had her heart pace wires removed as well as her two chest tubes (she knows them as big straws). It was a difficult procedure for her. The team at Children's Medical Center did a fantastic job listening to her wishes of going slow, giving her information and stopping for breaks when she asked for them. She has been moved to a new room on the regular Cardiac Floor instead of ICU. Her chest x-ray showed some 'gunk' in her lungs this morning so we are going to try to get her up and walking around. We don't want her having a repeat of the pneumonia that we know so well! Pastor Kory from our awesome church, Argyle United Methodist Church brought Tia a prayer shawl. We all said a prayer together asking God for a quick recovery. Tia is resting comfortably right now with lots of pain meds on board.
