The Day After

Today Harper’s swelling has decreased significantly and she’s looking more like herself again. She remains stable… She’s on a morphine drip for pain, and is currently hooked up to the EEG machine and is on a low dose of anti-seizure medication. She is still on the ventilator but is slowly decreasing her dependence on it. She has a catheter in her head to drain the fluid and decrease the pressure on her brain, and so far that’s going just as it should. The nurse told us tonight that the catheter would be in place until she was in a better position to have a shunt put in, but the doctor told us yesterday that the ultimate hope is that a shunt won’t be necessary- we’re holding on to that hope! Thanks for continuing to pray with us…
