Monday Morning

The night went well for Andie. Not only did they stop her epinephrine and reduced her flolan - she maintained her stats. So last night she took food, got off one med, and reduced another. So all in all she had a good night.

For today they will reduce her flolan extremely slow and increase her food intake 1cc an hour. So they just doubled her milk intake, so she's at 2 cc/hr. And in an hour she'll go to 3cc/hr, and so forth.

Looking at the monitor way to much, but her blood/oxygen level has remained in the 90% range and hitting 100% several times. They have a pulmonaryologist now in the loop for a new set of eyes and someone who is specialized in pulmonary hypertension. However they did notice her lung that was collapsing is still collapsed but they're monitoring it.

Things look to be improving, we just have to keep the hope that she'll keep going in this direction.
