August 8th 24 Days Old!!!

Today wasnt a Great Day!! :( They said they "thought" Emmie-Rose started having Seizures, though they werent exactly sure. She moves alot for a baby her size I guess, She had an EEG to watch for seizures when She was at St. Joes and nothing. So they decided to give her a Sedative enough though they didnt know for sure. They watched her and when She started moving again, the Nurse put her hand over her body and She stopped "moving" which means its not a seizure. SO they did ANOTHER EEG at U of M today to see what they found and We are waiting on the final results hopefully tomorrow. I am very skeptical right now by what they are seeing and feeling are seizures (as they dont even know her, and her moving is not unusual).I wont be Surprised if they ARE seizures as its probably pretty common in "Little Ones" but I am NOT yet convinced. Her Blood Culture came back today Negative so Hopefully the Surgery can be scheduled tomorrow for the "Shunt". Otherwise Baby Girl is doing very well, BP has finally come up to "normal" today and they set Her vent down to 40 and then 30 or 35 (trying to remember). But because they have Her so highly sedated (GRRRR), they had to turn her vent back up some. Very Frustrating as it seems, 20 steps back at this hospital all the time.


Keep on Praying!
