There were no big changes over the weekend with Kathryn. She is off of her antibiotic, her Fentinel is still a little reduced,and she is only taking the steroid once a day right now. She has maybe one or two more days of that and they will reassess to see if they continue them. They were able to take her arterial line out from her left hand yesterday since she is only doing labs every 12 hours now, so they will go back to heel sticks. If they have to increase her lab frequency, they will do another art line, but not for now. She also had her IV removed from her right hand yesterday too because it was running slow, so when she needs her next blood transfusion, she will get a new one of those. But for today, she has no "equipment" on either hand!!! She maintained around 2lbs, 2ozs to 2lbs, 3 ozs over the weekend, but she looks like she is losing some more of the fluid too.
They were talking about starting gut priming late last week or over the weekend, but they decided to hold off. There were two babies in the NICU this weekend that were very sick, so the doctors were a little overwhelmed with their care. We don't know who those babies were, but please pray for healing for sick babies in the Brookwood NICU.
We went yesterday to Montgomery for a shower for my brother and his wife. They are expecting a baby boy in October and received so many wonderful gifts for Reed. Kathryn could fit in one arm or one leg of some of the outfits they received for him!!
Well, better get to work!!!
Please pray for Kathryn.
