Don’t get too comfortable

We had a very quiet weekend… Our big girls came up for a visit, and Harper did nothing but sleep. There were no major changes with anything, and she continued to do well aside from continuing with the vomiting issues and the morphine withdrawal.

Then out of nowhere we received a middle of the night call from the doctor- for reasons no one can explain Harper stopped breathing. The theory is that it is the result of some kind of seizure activity, but no one really knows for sure.  She had to re-intubated with a smaller breathing tube than before due to extreme inflammation of her airways around her vocal chord area. She is now on steroids for the swelling, and had to have another chest x-ray (which was all clear). She is already requiring minimal oxygen support, but we don’t know yet how long she will have the new breathing tube. They also did some lab work and had to give her a round of blood products. They did another c/t scan to check her brain as that is always a concern in her case, but (praise God!) it is still looking good.

Prayers are appreciated as always as we accept another set-back (but praising Him that they were able to save our girl again and that her brain is continuing to heal)….
