Well, I didn't update yesterday because there wasn't much to update. Olivia was still pretty sedated from the meds and the doctor was basically just monitoring her and keeping her as stable as possible. The huge thing from yesterday (and today) is that she has had no more abnormal brain activity! We know this is a miracle and pray against anymore signs of abnormal brain activity in the coming days as she is weaned off one of the anti-seizure medications (phenobarbital).
Today will be a big day for Olivia! She started off the day getting the vent taken out again. We are, of course, praying that it doesn't have to go back in. Olivia didn't do so well at first when they took out the vent and was struggling a little bit to breathe so the nurse actually had to do a breathing treatment and she seemed to settle back down to rest again. We were there when all this happened and it was a little scary for this momma to see. I'm anxious to get back up to the hospital to see how she is doing this afternoon!
Here are a couple pictures of our precious angel without the vent!
Hopefully today they will also remove some other IVs and tubes she has had since birth. I'm getting more and more anxious to hold this precious baby!
