Now for the afternoon update:
We spoke to the doctors this am and the plan is to lower her Flolan to 8 by tonight and then we are going to sit tight until her lung is back to normal. Her right upper lobe of her lung is still collapsed. Then once her lung looks better, we will slowly wean her off the Nitrate. I mean slowly to see how she tolerates it.She is now getting 4 cc's an hour of breast milk. We saw the Polmonologist this afternoon again and he agrees with the plan of action. We want to go slow so she does not go backwards. Fine with us. We can handle baby steps. She got her cathiter out today, so she is going potty in her big girl pants again. We now have a mobile hanging from her bed and she seems to totally focus on that now. Oh yeah, She has pooped today too!!!! They gave her aspirin in her bottom to help her poop. Of all the tape pulling, suctioning, surgery, x-rays, etc. The aspirin up the bottom actually made her grimmace and kind of cry. It broke my heart. She is soooo beautiful. I keep giving her my pep talks, I know her daddy talked to her today too. I again want to thank everyone for all your prayers. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated.
All Our Love,
Andie, Her Mommy & Daddy
I want to thank my wonderful husband for coming here during the day and going home to play dad at night. Your doing a great job. I know its hard, but thank you soooo much. Tonight we are going to have dinner with the boys again. They are going to pick me up and we are going to the Spaghetti Factory for dinner. I'm glad I get to a least see them for awhile. I miss them ALL very much. They are doing a great job of coping with the circumstances. I love you all very much
Holding onto her mommy!
Hangin' out with her bunny!
No, this is not Andie's car. Her daddy promised her a pony! Well, more like a Mustang GT! *wink* Brooke sent me the pics and this one was in the e-mail attachment. OOPS! I just had to laugh because this is SO Andie's oldest brother Brogan. He LOVES cars (like his Poppa!) and he will be tickled to see this on here!
O sing to the LORD a new song, For He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him.
