Juliet is OFF of the ventilator!! She was extubated yesterday morning, but the team was threatening to put her back on, so I didn't post. (I didn't want to jinx it.) :) She had a good night last night and an even better day today so I think it's safe to share. Her electrolytes are still a little off and she is dehydrated because of the fluid restriction she has been on the last week and a half. The changes over the last 24 hours have mostly been to address that. They are now giving her extra fluid to make up for the fluid that continues to drain from her chest tube. When will her chest tubes stop draining? Only time will tell. Time.....it's one of my least favorite things right now.
Juliet continues to be such a little fighter. I have a feeling, throughout her life, she will accomplish ANYTHING she puts her mind to.
