Ava had a very good day. We love steady! See Fridays always concern us. Her worst days have been on Fridays. So far so good!
Right now she is getting her 7th blood transfusion. Her count was a little low so on we go! Those of you that know me will think to yourselves what can Terri do with this part of the process? Perhaps I will have to have a blood drive in Ava's honor. How many would be willing to give blood for a baby? Okay let's get her out of the hospital first. I loved doing her Awareness Walk. We will continue that each and every year.
So as for extubation, we are going to wait a few days. Her meds are still pretty high and the doctors are waiting for her to tell them that she is awake enough to breath all on her own with no threat of exhaustion. The last thing we want is for them to have to put the tube back in her throat.
Today they changed Ava's stomach dressing. Wow was that ever gross. I don't really like gorey things but in the case of my daughter Miss Ava I have put all other things aside and I have to know what is normal and what is not. SO I must look! Yikes! The old dressing got stuck on a suture and wow did Ava panic. It looks a lot better and less bulky.
I want to thank the Billheimers for the beautiful bracelet. Mindi it is out of this world and HOPE that is our Ava! That toped my day! Here is the pictures of her adorable bracelet. Thank you Denise for the beautiful angel beenie. Also this is Ava very comfortable. She's not so lady like here.
Thanks again for checking on our sweet Princess Ava.
