shilo is extremely positive right now (taking in much more liquid than she is peeing out). she is swollen. last night though, she was swollen beyond recognition. at 2:30 i roused to the nurse in the room, and then all the alarms and bells started sounding. i sleepily sat up and tried to focus at the screen. the sat numbers were dropping, but not anything i hadn't seen before. until they hit single digits. she was blue/grey, swollen, and surrounded by nurses, doctors, and respiratory therapist trying to bring her out of it. it took nearly two hours to stabilize her. mama really thought that she might lose her little peanut.
so at rounds this morning i said please move her from meds every four hours that are wearing off and causing her to have scary episodes to a continuous drip. they did. and since then she has been sleepy enough that even when the nurse does vitals her sats haven't dropped at all. the nurse was even able to wipe off her face without her so much as noticing.
we seem to really be at our worse right now, the virus being exacerbated by the aspiration of vomit when intubated. really, it can only get better from here. and that is what we are going to believe and pray for now.
in the mean time, mama hasn't had lots to do. so i made some bows with a friend who also has a little girl here, and have been enjoying some cuteness on my little instead of just tubes and wires everywhere.
last night (notice the swollen eyes)
this morning (still swollen, but much better) with some awesome hair!
thanks all for loving us and sending such amazing and good thoughts. please keep praying for our little. i miss her.
