Busy Bee.

Olivia has a busy day ahead of her if she decides to cooperate. She had a great weekend - tolerated all the changes that were made. As for today, the plans are as follows:
1. Decrease vent settings
2. Start coumadin (oral blood thinner medication)
3. Give platelets.
4. Start CPAP trials!
Do you know what that means? CPAP trials are basically turning off the rate on the ventilator and seeing how she would tolerate being off the vent. If she tolerates this, she may be able to get off the ventilator sometime this week! How crazy is that?!?
She did get some blood last night so she is nice and pink today. Her x-rays are looking great, as well.
If she has a good day, I am heading back to Macomb again tonight for a sleepover with Zac and the kids. Jack has another game tonight so we are going to that and out to dinner! Can't complain about that!

I hope Olivia keeps up the good work today, baseball is getting a little boring. It'd be nice to have someone else to visit with.
