Daily Hope: Tuesday, February 10
Hope had a little excitement last night. She had an "episode" so they ran bloodwork, did a chest x-ray, blood culture, and a urine culture. The chest x-ray showed she had poor expansion, so she is now on percussive treatment and an inhaler. We are still waiting on the results from the cultures. The CBC bloodwork showed that her crit was low, so she also had an infusion, which makes her color much better!!
Hope's weight gained 100 grams overnight!!! That is a whopping 1340 grams, 2 pounds 15 ounces (which is just 21 grams short of 3 pounds!!!) But, we don't want to get TOOO excited because the weight could be a bit inaccurate and show a loss tomorrow, so we just have to weight and see!! (pun intended)
Hope was a movie star today as well, she was videotaped during her percussive treatments. We'll post those a little later.
