Update on Miss Emma

Emma had a pretty good night.  Woke up several times, restless, and needing us by her side.  So, not a whole lot of sleep for any of us really but no major problems, which is great!  Today, she is a little more alert but is again, restless.  Her blood gases (oxygen, CO2, etc.) have normalized back out.  She is on Vapotherm still, but they are weening it down.  The doctors are overall pleased with her progress that she is making. 

We have been able to get a few smiles out of her this morning.  She is still very groggy though so we have to be persistent in entertaining her to get those smiles.  But we all have sang together, read books, laughed, talked, and of course, given lots of kisses. 

All in all, she is doing good for all that she has been through.  Continue to pray for her post-op t, that it continues to go smoothly and she continues to to improve.

The plan for today is to ween her Vapotherm from 15 liters to 12 liters and see how she does.  Also, they are going to pull out her foley catheter and start up her feeds and meds again.  Hopefully she will tolerate everything well.

Thank you all for the continued thoughts and prayers!

God is good, all the time.  And all the time, God is good!  We give thanks to Him for the progress that she is making and has made!
