On the mend!!!

Pin It



Ventilator out!! Cannula in!



                                           Dreaming of Chocolate!

Todays goals were to get her off all her sedative type meds. Get her nutrition up to 1oz per hour from her feeding tube. Keep the fever away (it comes and goes) and wean her oxygen down a bit. She was getting 10 liters per minute this morning and we are down to 8 this afternoon. She will have her ez pap treatments as needed. 
All very reachable goals that she will likely have accomplished by morning. 
A great day!!!!!!!

She is looking so good! God is so good! Thankful that she is doing well. Can I ask what about her pacemaker? Will she still have to have one?

This little warrior has definitely been touched over and over by the hand of God. It is so good to see her look peaceful and even happy as she slumbers. Mary, you are such a strong woman of faith and have been such an example for us on how to come through a storm with such Grace. Hugs and kisses to you all.

Still praying for sweet Ivy!

Yes! Off the vent! That is such a relief I know! The canulla is so much less intrusive. I will be praying for Ivy's fever. I hope it is gone now? I want you to know that Katie Grace also ran a fever almost the entire time, many times it spiked over 103.5. She did not culture positive for any bacteria, so it is possible that is is just part of the fight. It really didn't subside completely until 2 days before we left and after that it was gone. Now she has been fever free since home for the past 3 days.

Have been quietly following from Diana's blog and just wanted to say that we,too, are keeping Ivy in our prayers and were thrilled to hear that she is on the mend and doing so well. What an amazing and beautiful little girl (who has a very strong and loving mama)!
