We are all tired of being in the PICU. I feel so bad for the families that spend months in there. It has been quite a roller coaster!
Friday night and all day Saturday were very rough. Piper cried almost the entire time. We decided that she needed a mild sedative to calm her and help her to rest. It worked wonders! She rested last night and most of today.
Her blood pressure went up, so she is back on blood pressure medicine. She drank some pedialyte tonight. That was the first "food" she has had since Tuesday night.
In the past two days we have been able to remove 1 IV, 1 arterial line, cvp line, the braces to hold her arms straight, and the tube from her nose. We are making progress!
Piper has also started pooing again. This means her bowels are working again. We are still waiting for her kidney to jump start and make some pee. Please pray that Piper will pee soon!!
