Happy 1/2 Birthday Elaina!!!! Six months old today!! What a milestone!
Thursday and Friday were both good days for Elaina. She had her very first spontaneous trial yesterday! It lasted for 30 minutes and she did GREAT!! I am so proud of her. She's had 3 more today, and so far it's looking really good. She'll be weaned off her nitric by tomorrow, so maybe by some time next week she can be extubated! Right now her spontaneos trials are only 30 minutes. We'll go up to an hour on Saturday and then talk about it. This is such a different scenario than last week at this time. My hopes are high, but the docs keep telling me that we're not out of the woods. On a scary note, her broviac site is infected. So far nothing has shown up in her blood cultures, but the site is oozing and inflamed. Infectious disease is looking at it today, so I'm hoping that everything will be okay.
Anyway, I have TONS more that I want to post, but no time to do it in. I will post much more on Saturday night. I actually decided to leave the hospital again and I'm spending the night with Ben at my Grandma's so I don't want to take away from my time with him.
Thank you all again for your continued love and support!!
