Ashlyn Update

Ashlyn is doing good. Last night was a really good night for her. Her resp rate was in the mid to low 60's and they turned down her oxygen from 1 liter to 3/4 of a liter. I spent a good hour with her this morning and she was alert and had her eyes open....she even smiled at me :o) While I was there the nurse let me change one of her diaper and of course it was a poopy diaper....never thought I would be so happy to change a poopy diaper.

Later this morning the doctor came into to see her. He explained to me that she is starting to show signs of pneumonia on her she either had undeveloped lungs or she has a touch of pneumonia and he is leaning on pneumonia. The plan with pneumonia is antibiotics for 5-7 days and she has been on that for the last 2-3 they are already on top of things in that field. Right now it is just a waiting game. But so far she is starting to slowly improve. The nurse let me hold her for a little while about 20 mins ago and I was in heaven :o) :o) I will continue to keep everyone updated.
