Check this out...

Olivia is still doing unbelievable. She had a great, great night. They turned her back over to her back this morning and she is tolerating it better than ever. Her oxygen sats have been no less than 99% since I've been here. They were able to get her oxygen down to 50% and her rate down to 17! This is huge. But even bigger than that - they turned off the paralytic. I haven't seen her move yet, but we'll see how she tlerates it. Her blood pressure and heart rate don't seem to affected by it so far. We'll keep our fingers crossed...

Grandma is coming to hang out with Olivia for most of the day so I can take the kids to the zoo. We are meeting a bunch of friends from G-burg at Niabi Zoo in the Quad Cities. Should be a fun day to spend with the girls and their kiddos! So, we need Olivia to continue to behave so there are no worries while we are there (and no rain would be nice, too!)

Wow! Way to go Olivia!

I hope you have a great day at the zoo with your friends. Sounds like a good break from the hospital. Enjoy!
