Daily Dose: Wednesday, July 8

Hope had a rough night last night and her morning was a bit rough as well. Yesterday, the doctors weaned Hope's ventilator settings down quite a bit even though Hope had an increased number of desats. The wean apparently went too far for Hope's pleasure because she had 50 events between 8pm last night when Mommy & Daddy left and 10am today when her ventilatory support was raised- 50 events is the amount that the computer can store. After her settings were raised, Hope did much better, but still had a few events because her respiratory reserves weren't quite caught up.

Hope was much more pleasant and far less agitated today. She had a very very large #2 (poop) last night that made her much more comfortable.

As you can see from the picture, Hope is still getting the "glove" treatment, and no one is very happy about it.
