Still coping with the tube.
Here is my little fighter. Mommy has the fighting bull dog on just for Ava. We know it takes time but she is strong to pull through yet one more cdh battle.
Ava finally turns to her left side. Good thing because her lungs are starting to build up fluid on that one side.
See how precious she is. She is looking really comfy! Way to just rest and let your body heal Miss Ava.
Ava lounging and getting her resting. We are so proud of you Ava, honey!
Daddy consoling his little angel. It is all going to be over before you know it our tiny precious!
She is fighting so hard and she is our inspiration. We are so proud of her. You can tell she doesn't like any of this but she is managing. I told her this morning that in a very short time this would all be a distant memory.
They just lowered her Morphine and Versed. This is what I have been wanting them to do this morning. In order to get off the vent she can't be on such strong meds. She so far is tolerating it well. The respitory therapist comes in and does treatments on her lungs while on the vent. Her heart rate is now in the 160's and she is stating 97. She actually grabbed my finger as they were suctioning her a few minutes ago. My heart just skipped a beat. She will be waking up a and I am so ready to see her big beautiful eyes.
The surgeon told me today that they want to start feeding her about 4 hours after being exubated. PLEASE pray this will happen tonight. We are finally headed the right direction! I am so happy. Lexis and Emeline will bevisiting us tonight. I'm not 100% sure if we are letting them see Ava or not. It is such a hard decesion to make. I am looking forward to hugging them so tight. I have missed them so much. It seems like weeks instead of days.
Thanks again for your wonderful love and support! God is so good. He heals the broken. I was singing to her this morning and it felt so good to know that life is what we make it. Stop each second and thank God for what you have at this exact moment!
