And the Good News Keeps Comming!!!

Yet another good day for Emma Nichole!!! Even with the diuretic they gave her yesterday, her weight stayed at 1lb 10oz!! They clamped off one of the chest tubes- the smaller one, and she did so well they removed it earlier this morning and has been doing great all day without it. Only one more to go and the nurse says maybe it will come out tomorrow... please pray...
She got some more blood today but the good news is the dopamine which is to keep her blood pressure where it needs to be is now off and has been since 0100 last night! Yea!!! This afternoon they had an issue with her 02 levels being very low but after another chest xray it wasn't her left lung giving her problems but the breathing tube had become dislodged. They pulled it out and replaced in the right spot and she is doing great. They continue to increase her feedings- she is up to 6cc every 3 hours and tolerating wonderfully.
As a side note- for the last 3 days when we show up her o2 sats are a bit on the low side. All Rob has to do is go get a cup of coffee and she perks back up!!! Every time... What am I gonna do when he goes back to work? LOL Please keep our daughter in your prayers- HE IS LISTENING!!!
