Musical chairs

Olivia's having a really good day so far. She has managed to stay off of high flow for now. She is at 4 liters off the wall. She has gotten as low as 3 which is where they would like to have her. Otherwise she will go back to high flow just to have the extra humidity and avoid having her nasal passages dry out.
She has also been able to keep down some applesauce, jello, and 1 1/2 ounces of milk! This is awesome. We really need her to pick up on the calories so she can get more energy. Her lungs are still looking better. There is a little bit of junk in there, but for the most part, she's getting better. She is still having a little trouble keeping her sats up, which could be related to the junk in her lungs or her pulmonary hypertension.
Regardless, she is feeling much better all around. She was all over her crib this morning. Flipping around, talking, playing, smiling like crazy, etc... It's good to see her moving around so much.

We've moved rooms, again. It's like musical chairs up here. You keep moving and moving, but once you don't have a room, you get booted downstairs or sent home. We'll take the latter of the two if it comes down to it. I'd say that's the winner!
Monday is the day the doctors all have their cath conference. They should be discussing Olivia's case, so hopefully we'll know more then about the surgery plans. I'd love to be able to get the kids out of school and then come back for it, but God will ultimately put his plan into action and pick the right time for all of us! He never gives us more than we can handle, and He definitely helps us handle what we are given.

It's so good to see a picture of Olivia sitting up & playing. She must be feeling better.

Congrats to Jack on being the Student of the Month!

I'm so glad to see a picture of Olivia. I guess I was picturing her being in a crib all the time, but now that I think about it, I'm sure she wouldn't be very happy laying around all the time. She's not going to be a baby for too much longer, I can tell she's turning into a toddler already! Time flies doesn't it!?!
