So there hasn't been much change in Gracie's progress she is still on the vent and not really progressing. The doctors took her off of the bumex drip, but a day later had to put her back because her lungs digressed. It is so interesting to look at each day's x-rays and see either improvement or worsening, the doctors always say that the x-rays lag in what they can hear in her chest.
Today they also took a lot of cultures to see if anything grows out, her CRP levels are up and her white blood cells are showing signs of a possible infection. Right now they are continuing Grace on antibiotics and hopefully will respond positively to them.
Gracie seemed to rest well today, she actually smiled at me a couple of times this morning. Oh how wonderful it was to see my baby be happy even if it was only for a couple of seconds. I know if we can just get her lungs better she will just progress quickly and we'll be home soon.
