Hope has a different position: she is now laying on her stomach, and she likes it!! This morning they did a repeated brain scan which showed no change and that is good news. Her lungs showed a little congestion this morning but with respiratory treatment and her new position they have cleared up. Her blood gasses are excellent but they still have her on increased oxygen. Her lab work is improving so they are monitoring that.
Hope definitely has some attitude, which I'm sure she gets from me =) When she is lying on her stomach she likes her face straight down, but the respiratory therapist keeps moving it to the side, only for her to move it back to the middle. The therapist told her: "Hope, I know you don't like it but you need to move your head where I put it." Magically, when they moved her head again she left it in that position. So she is a lot like her aunt, stubborn but when you asked nicely she complies with your requests!
Keep praying! Hope needs them.
