Which is a really good thing. She had a stable night – even got down to room oxygen (21%) for a time, but mostly hung out at 25%. She is doing fine at her lower settings – and if all goes well during that day today, might try decreasing again this afternoon. The big activity for the day is around her chest tube that they left in for drainage.. They have switched it from active sucking, to just drainage as needed (water seal) and they are taking an Xray at 1:00.. if it looks ok, they may pull her chest tube today. I am sure she will be happy to get that out!
We got the results from her lung culture and they are not really worried about an infection and she is already on antibiotics. The poop report is still no big poop- but she (sorry for being overly descriptive here, but family wants to know…) has had a few smears – which is a good sign that things are starting to work.
So hopefully another stable day as my baby gains more strength and heals. Just praying for her to keep getting stronger and recover from the surgery and keep up her miraculous HEALING!
23 days old today – thank you God!
