Where to begin?

Well, Olivia's acting up. This afternoon, she dropped her oxygen saturations into the 60's, so they turned her up to 30 liters. That's a whole lot of O's. She did okay for a while, but then dropped her pressures. They put another arterial line in her arm, started her on an epinephrine drip, and then ended up having to re-intubate her. She's been up and down with all of her numbers all day and has a full Christmas tree of pumps for her meds again. It was nice to see her so happy and awake for the last 2 days, so it's hard to see this step back. We hadn't had any setbacks for a really long time, so I suppose we were due. They went ahead and put in another line in her neck, which ended up being a good thing. When they went to do a chest xray, the central line in her chest came flying out. I guess things happen for a reason. Anyway, the Dr. T. and the nurses have been working hard all day to get her where she needs to be. She'll get there soon enough. Please pray.
