Daily Dose: Thursday, May 14
Hope had a few episodes today, but that is nothing new. She seems to have 2 or 3 episodes a day. Everyone had hoped the trach would put an end to these episodes, but it looks like the lower airway collapse she has might be causing her to have continued episodes. She was not weaned off the pressure support today with the idea that she would stay at their current settings for the weekend to give her a little time to grow and get stronger. She will probably be weaned down a little on Monday.
Mommy & Daddy finished their trach classes today. Now they know the 3 C's of trachs: change, clean and care! They will be doing their first trach change on Monday, hopefully it goes well.
