Day +16 October 8

Just a quickie -Elle had a decent day.  She was awake some, but still totally sedated.  She was seen by several Dr.s and she is still stable to improving. 
Pain well controlled with Versed and Dialaudid.  Using less Vecuronium.  BPs still dropped some today, but Epi increased and fluid given 1X.  Evening BPs just fine.  Dialysis going well.  Chest xray no change. Did a ton of dressings including all four limbs, headgear (Stefan did), and all four lines (she has a Hickman, 2 PICCs, and an art line now!)  She is 6.0 kg.

Her WBCs were 0.4 today- on the way up! -skin wise and engraftment wise, she is on track.

Chloe is fine, enjoying her grandma.  Stefan is OK, working very hard and not sleeping enough.  I am going to bed now.  Goodnight.  Sorry no photos today.


  1. So glad to hear that Elle had a good day yesterday. I'm praying for that sweet little one and hope that she continues to improve.

  2. I'm glad to hear that Elle is starting to improve! We will continue to pray that she can be extubated around day +21. We're rigth next door if you need ANYTHING! :)

  3. Praying for Sweet Baby Elle!
