Friday Update after Rounds!

Here is our plan of action of the day:

We are on auto mode on the ventilator! What that does is it makes her breathe on her own and if she forgets, it alarms and gives her 8 seconds then breaths for her.

Also, we are going to lower the Flolan slowly from 8 to I don't know to what and how fast.

As you can tell my insides are a mess. I'm soooo nervous but the doctors seem pretty confident that she is going to handle ALL of this pretty well.

I pray she does. She has not alarmed in a few minutes, so she must be doing it right.

Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated. These next few days are going to be nerve wracking.

I know she is in God's hands and I feel confident He will get her through this.
I know He has gotten her this far and I feel He will continue to get her through this too!

All of your prayers have helped her too. We thank you ALL so very much for this.

I will update later tonight.

Love,
Brooke

Hi There,
What a trial you are facing. I am so praying for your beautiful neice & daughter. :) If you are interested, here's a blog with a baby that was a similar situation.

Paste that into your browser and see her situation. Hopefully it will give you hope. Keep it up. Andie isn't going to give.
