July 28th - A hard Day.

4:30am Yesterday They replaced Her breathing tube because She had outgrown it, plus it had a hole in it. So in the early morning the new tube popped out.

5:30am Nothing too alarming... They put an oxygen mask on Her to see how She would do on Her own without the ventilator. She did well for a while then got tired of breathing on Her own.

6:30am New breathing tube put back in and back on the ventilator. New x-rays taken to make sure its in the right place.

After that excitement They came in and did Her ultrasound of Her head to see what's going on there. They will be in later today to do scans of Her heart.
Depending on the read of the head scans They may begin draining some of the fluid off Her brain thru lumbar punctures in Her back.

She will be ready for a good nights sleep after all of today's poking and proding.

Keep Emmie-Rose in your prayers today as she undergoes all the doctors are going to dish out.
Will have more to report later on.

For those that want to know how tiny she is, the Nurses made Us a litle card with Her handprint and feet. This picture really is actual size!
