Day +13 already. She is still in the thick of things right now, but doing very well considering recent events. She has weaned of 2 of her 3 blood pressure meds (dopamine and vasopressin) and is almost off of her Epinephrine. So she is maintaining blood pressures on her own pretty much. Her temperatures still drop very low (93.4 degrees -ACK!) but she usually has the Bair Hugger on to keep her warm. She ended up growing out pseudomonis from her catheter tips. She is on a broad spectrum of antibiotics to cover the infection.
She is still occasionally opening her eyes a little and moving a little. Her liver is not super. Her Bili was 19.2 today apparently 19.7 yesterday, I was mistaken about the lower number reported yesterday.

Here are some pictures from the other day below that Timmy shared with me -oh and by the way, I have reset the settings so that anyone can make comments (didn't realize that it wasn't an option before). We really appreciate that you are reading and derive strength from your messages. Thank you.
