She had an ultrasound of the liver and kidneys. No VOD! yeah. So we escaped that one for now. Her vessels in her liver are working fine and not occluded. It is slightly enlarged though and her bilirubin is still high, but it is lower than yesterday (11 down from 14).
The other news is that she was taken off of the Vecuronium for a couple of hours to make sure she could still respond and twitch normally. Also, the hope was that allowing her a little normal movement and wakefulness may allow her gut to move, shift her fluids back into her vessels, and / or help her blood pressure. She twitched, wiggled, moved a little......and opened her eyes. I was just wishing and praying to see her eyes. She blearily peeked at me from under heavy, half open eye lids and blinked them closed again. She did this several times sleepily. Later for her dad, she even tracked him. JOY.
|Can you see her barely open eye? She got wise and closed them for subsequent photos|
