Not much has changed

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.

I truly hope little Gracie can go home soon. She is an amazing little girl. Our prayers are with all of you.

Sounds like we need to pray extra hard that her lungs will be strong and the infection will go away. We love you guys and love watching little Miss Morgan! We are probably going to go and see Gracie tomorrow night, so can you put us on the list so you do not have to bet there? We can always wait till later in the week, but we are missing sweet Gracie like crazy!!! I will call you tomorrow!
