Anna Update – Day 13
We are hoping she will be able to go through the night tonight without oxygen! The respiratory therapist took her down to room air as of 2:00 today, and so far, so good!
|No oxygen, no head bobbing, sleeping peacefully – she is looking great!|
That is such great news, since earlier that day her pediatric pulminologist had said that it would likely take them 2-3 days to get her weaned off of high-flow (pressure to deliver oxygen to her lungs) so that she could go home on just oxygen. Then he recommended she stay home from daycare for about a week after she is weaned off of oxygen – just to allow her time to get healthy and STAY healthy for a while.
|In the PICU around day 7. Wrapped in a knitted blanket from Grandma Karen and a prayer shawl from Bethel.|
|Trying to convince her to stop coughing – and to keep down her dinner! – late last week.
As you can see, she is definitely looking better now!
|Training has gone well here – getting outside everyday, sticking to my plan, and believing in my goals has helped me keep it together through all of this.
Thank you to all of my super star workout partners willing to meet me at the hospital to run!
|I’ll recap my recent training soon – last week I managed 44 miles! Woot, woot!
I’ll also explain this picture :).
Oh man, I can't even imagine. Hang in there mama. We all love you and your little family!!
She did it! A day without support! I am so excited to be home with her again! Also so excited to sleep in my own bed 🙂
