I couldn't sleep more after getting a two hour nap, so I called to check in on Lindsay. Nurse Tammi said that she is doing just great! She is still getting blood products to try and boost her crit levels. (currently at 32 and they would like them around 40 at the least) Otherwise, at 11pm, they will be adjusting the vent once more and we are slowly weaning her. Apparently the princess has other ideas because she really seems to want to walk right out of there. Tammi said that she woke up again and showed her her new trick from the last few weeks......shaking her head "no". You just have to laugh because even though you can't see it on her face yet, I just know that she is smiling when she is doing it. Little stinker! Needless to say, she got more drugs!! We are so thankful that she is feisty!!! Oh, and almost forgot, the drainage from her chest tubes has decreased from almost 30cc's per/hour per tube (and she has three of them) down to only about 10 cc's per hour per tube! Good girl Lindsay! Ok, back to trying to fall asleep for the night.
Love to you all!
