Saturday, October 12, 2013 Update

  Our little Lenah Bean is one month old today! Yay, Lenah!  Today she has been resting well.She had some lovely visitors this evening.  Her Grandad, Aunt Michelle, and Aunt Jamie came by to say hello and kiss her knee.  (it's the safest place to kiss her right now)  She tried to open her eyes and looked as though she was smiling several times.
  Her heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygenation, and temperature are all good.  She is still on the ventilator, but her rate has been decreased.    Her bilirubin count came back up some today, so they changed one of her antibiotics to one that is easier on the liver.  Her other liver labs are are elevated as well. She has everyone scratching their heads. Her chest tubes have not produced any more fluid.  They will probably be removed Monday morning. Her potassium was low today again and she received two doses of potassium.

Here is her picture today.  The light is pretty dim in here right now and I can't seem to get a good photo with the flash.  Her color is actually better in person than it looks in the picture.

   Happy First Month, Lenah!  Wishing you a much better second one!
