Happy Day...

Lots to celebrate today...


Today is Zac's birthday! Happy Birthday, babe! (Sorry..the only picture I could find of you was you yelling at the old football team ;) I don't have my usual resources)


And...it's World Down Syndrome Day today!

Olivia had a good night, so we can celebrate that, as well. She is still spiking temps here and there, which could be related to a few things. Personally, I think it's due to a possible infection from her PICC line. Her right leg is pretty red and swollen and very tender to the touch. It could just be inflammation, but might be infection. They removed the PICC line last night.

She's not tolerating weaning down on her blood pressure medications very well. Bummer. She may get to have a little bit of food in her belly today - just about 5 ml per hour to see how she handles it. They took her paralytic off yesterday, so it's nice to see her eyes again. However, it's hard to see her get sad, too. So, hoping for a quiet, peaceful day :o)
