Getting Better...Slowly

Kiera has pseudemonas (sp?) and has been on increased ventilator support. She is improving and is down to nebulizers every 3 hours instead of every 2, but she definitely needs her neb ON TIME. Her secretions are a better color now, too. Her rate on her ventilator was increased to 40 yesterday, and dropped to 35 today. Maybe tomorrow they will try to drop it to 30. They want her on 30 on the hospital vent before going onto an LTV. Remember she was on 25 on the LTV before she started getting sick. She's on 4 litres of O2 right now and was on 2 before getting sick. So it looks like our soonest ETA to get her home might be Saturday, but sometime next week is probably more likely.

Today she sat up for quite a while with her Boppy pillow for support and read her animal book from Uncle Matt and Aunt Erin. She LOVES that book. She and I played peek-a-boo for a bit and read books.

Thanks for your continued prayed for Kiera. We had her home 2 1/2 weeks. Maybe next time we can make it a month. :)
