We are still in the PICU, because Leah needed an increase in vapotherm while sleeping last night. The collapsed sacs in her lungs are opening, and she needs to cough a lot to clear the secretions. This morning’s X-ray showed improvement in her lungs. Today, they have decreased the vapotherm throughout the day with success. If they have difficulty with the low levels of vapotherm tonight, they may try a BPAP while she sleeps.
After some hard negotiating, they agreed to remove the IV from Leah’s right hand, so she can write and color. The left arm IV is still in place. She has been in good spirits today. Thank you so much for the cards, messages, and prayers. ❤️
Still no specific answer as to why this happened. Hoping to move from the PICU on Monday.
