Ups and Downs

The last few hours have been stressful.  Her O2 sats keep going up and down.  So that keeps requiring attention.

Her lungs and breathing SOUND better and her blood gasses show that the CO2 levels are good, but the oxygen levels not so good.  So there's some imbalance in there that needs to work itself out.

And she's had a fever, despite steroids and Tylenol.  The new doc on duty doesn't seem all that concerned about why, but the ICU nurse that's been with her all day is a bit concerned.  It's a bit down after her last dose of Tylenol, but will have to be monitored.

And she's been very out of it and lethargic.  Could be the Precedex (sedative) so they're weaning her off to see.  For a while it was hard to wake her up.

So there's still some ground to be covered.  Not quite of the woods yet.

Thanks for continued thoughts and prayers.

  1. Still praying. Praying she turns the corner soon. Having your baby in the hospital and being able to do nothing to help her is hard on the heart.
