I'm not even really sure how to say it other than Juliet, once again, is fighting for her life. Over the last 48 hours, her kidneys have significantly slowed in output, her weight is climbing again, the fluid around her lungs has significantly increased, and her heart is starting to pay the price for all of the above. The optimism in her prognosis is swiftly changing.
Again today, we met with nephrology, GI, infectious disease, and neonatology teams - trying to reformulate a plan. They are trying some new medicines and new techniques in hopes of turning this around. Another day was spent by Chris and I holding Juliet's hand and telling her how many people love her and want to see her pull through - including her big sisters. The emotional roller coaster of the last few weeks is really taking its toll. But thank goodness, we have Addison and Mackenzie to bring a little joy to our days with their never-ending dance parties and giggles.
I'm asking all of you to keep our family and especially Juliet in your thoughts and prayers. At this point we are taking things one day at a time - even one hour at a time. As her doctor said this morning, "Juliet rallied once before and now she needs to do it again."
