I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We certainly did, even though we spent it at the hospital. Emerson has been doing very well recently. The doctors were able to get her chest closed on Wednesday and ever since she has been able to get rid of a lot of the extra fluids that she was hanging on to!!! She is actually looking like herself again, except for her belly, which is still very swollen.
Her heart functions have been very good, and her pressure and heart rate have been stable! Yay!!
The doctors say that when she gets rid of a bit more fluid then they can start thinking about extubating her and letting her wake up a little bit. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!! I miss this baby so much!
Emmy has had no more problems with irregular heartbeats, knock on wood.....and hopefully will continue to behave herself. We'll see, the doctors have already come to find that they cannot trust this one!!! :)
