August 6th 22 Days Old!!!

Today, Emmie-Rose is doing pretty well. She has another infection that they are treating with Antibiotics. She was going to have her Surgery on Monday for her Resovoir to start draining the fluid from her Brain but due to the infection has been put off. Her blood pressure has been down awhile due to the Lasix last weekend. They gave her Lasix for her Lungs as they sounded a little cloudy. At that point, She lost too much salt and fluid, therefore it affected her BP. We have been trying for about a week to get it back up. She is on a BP Med to help it come back up to normal. She is doing pretty well on her vent, She is set at 40 right now which is good for her age. They did have to take out her IV and the line they using to give her blood due to the infection. So now one is in her Head and one in her arm. Other than that, She is doing Great and looks Wonderful!!

You Grow Girl!

Keep On Praying!

Love,
Stephanie

    Chris and Stephanie... our prayers ad thoughts are with you.. if there is anything we can do (like meals once this crazy week is over), let me know... I can bring things in to send home with Chris in the mornings as he leaves work... I'll wait on making more things for her until they let her wear them.. though most hospitals allow the hospital gowns for the preemies as long as they are the right size, and thats why I made those.. If the U says they will let her wear them, I'll make some larger ones when she is big enough for the next size up...

    I hope she continues to improve and everything works out for the best.

    Amie
