Pneumonia continued...

Stats this morning:

O2 sats 99% on room air with high flow cannula pressure of 8
Heart rate: 100
BP: 93/43
Temp: 101.7


The plan for today is to wean her off the high flow nasal cannula and watch her sats and breathing effort over night.  Rocephin stopped as of this morning.  Clindamycin continued IV.  She'll go home on an oral form of the same.

She's enjoying her chest PT... a large vest that inflates and vibrates for 20 minutes every 4 hours.  The purpose is to break up the mucus in her lungs so it can be coughed (or suctioned) out.

Sweet girl is weathering this hospital stay like a champ... and winning the hearts of everyone caring for her.  Typical Abby

"We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.  Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the REDEMPTION of our bodies.  For in this hope we were saved."

Romans 8:22-24
