Blair is OFF the vent! WAHOO! She seems to be doing really well today.
She is hoarse from the breathing tube. They have her on 1 liter of oxygen and are giving her breathing treatments to kind of help open up her airway because it sounds a little swollen. She's awake off and on. They are giving her morphine and adavan for the pain. They have her on the lowest dose starting out of Morphine, but will probably turn it up a bit so it doesn't wear off so fast.
They have started TPN and lipid feeds.
They changed her PICC line dressing.
She was happy to see the balloons that daddy got her at the end of her bed. Of course she tried reaching up to them and couldn't. I felt so bad for her! Hopefully in a few days she will get to hold them!
Also, she is making a LOT of pee pee! So, that is great news because that means she is getting rid of all the excess fluid in her. Her abdomen doesn't seem as swollen as it was this morning.
And, the best news of all... SHE POOPED!!!!!
Please continue to pray for poop... this means that she doesn't have any bowel blockages!!!!
Hopefully tomorrow or the next day she will get moved up to a regular room!
Here are the pics from today!
