|Sporting her new head gear -the dressing forms a sort of "bill" and she looks like a jockey!|
Elle is still truckin'. She went back on Prisma with no issues, she did not even get puffy. She has been weaned down on her Vasopressin and Epi and is still not on norepi -this is good. It means her blood pressures are strong. Today her arterial line did come back positive for yeast after 2 days growing, as did the red port of her Hickman and brown port of her PICC yesterday. This is so frustrating; beastly yeast! A CT will be done this week to determine if she has what they call yeast balls in her organs. If the scan shows no balls, then they may assume the source is the lines and consider pulling them somehow. When she is weaned off of pressors, that will be the ideal "window". I will be waiting like a cat, ready to pounce the second that happens! Stefan of course, is also looking at every possibility.
Dad is leaving tomorrow :( but he and Bonita have never been apart this long and they will have a happy reunion. He has been so helpful with house chores, maintenance, laundry, car care, Chloe care, errands, bill organizing, and fatherly counselling! I started calling him Cindergrandpa. I shouldn't admit this and scare off potential future helpers! He has enjoyed his granddaughters though, so that is a good thing.
