A day of tests

Juliet had a relatively stable day. They were able to significantly reduce her oxygen requirement today. Thanks to some additional medicine, she remained comfortable (and a little sleepy). Nana & Aunt Autumn came for a visit. Jules didn't open her eyes for them, but she did raise her eyebrows and wiggle her toes when they talked.

She had 5 "tests" today: a chest x-ray, an echocardiogram on her heart, a cranial sector scan on her brain, an ultrasound of her kidneys, and a peripheral vascular study. The doctors are trying to make sure nothing is being overlooked that may be contributing to her inability to fight this infection. She had a VERY busy day. ALL of the above tests were normal. I guess this is good, but it doesn't give us any more answers to what is going on.

I'm not sure what the plan will be now. I will be sure to get to the NICU early tomorrow morning to sit in on rounds and ask "what's next?". (I'll also try to have Juliet's 3 week photo shoot tomorrow.)

Keep the thoughts and prayers coming...
