7 july

well, we are still off the vent. Blood gasses still look good. They are going up a touch (43, 50, 53), but they are still lower than most of her gasses were while she was vented! She does have a touch of strider (squeeking from a floppy airway) and is working to breathe, but she's hanging! No additional oxygen, and they actually took her down a big on the high flow stuff (from 4 to 3 1/2. I have no real clue as to what that means, but it's just for those of you medically peoples out there.) She gets her last dose of steroids tonight, so tomorrow night is the next big hurdle. Things could get worse as they wear off. So I'm contemplating staying at the hossy overnight. We'll see. The doc says that if we make it through the weekend without having to be reintubated, that she should fly. I just don't know if I can handle a set-back at this point, so please pray for success!

Jaime has been just a dream. Last night, he went to sleep so well. I started to rock him and David went outside to pull his car into the garage. By the time David got back in, Jaime was out! I just love cuddling with him. Oh, and he didn't have oatmeal for breakfast!!! I went out on a limb and tried soggy cocoa krispies. it took a while, but he ate the whole thing!!!

Have I mentioned recently that my kids are the best?

Oh, and good luck at home Miss Zoey!!!
