4:54pm Today's update from rounds: blood gases still look good so they will keep trying to lower the vent settings, they put in another venous line for meds etc if needed, they did another abdominal ultrasound to check her kidneys...if this turns out ok they will start giving her breastmilk through her picc line!! :) , they gave her albumin today to help draw fluid into the cells and they are chasing it with lasix to try to get rid of more fluid--she continues to look better with less fluid but still has lots to get rid of--please pray this helps!!, right upper lobe of lung looks better but still has some fluid in the lung--they need to keep her on the oscillator vent to help keep the lungs open, the echocardiogram looks better--blood seems to be flowing better through the heart but heart muscle is still thickened, they did put the bilirubin lamp back on but only bc they want it to help 'sweat off' some of her fluids. Please keep praying!! She continues to make slow gains so we are happy for that!! Thank u!!!
