Juliet continues to make progress in the right direction. The edema is almost gone. Her blood cultures remain negative and she should be ready to come off of the ventilator very soon. Let's hope her 4th extubation will be her last.
She had an eye exam this afternoon. The opthamologist was VERY pleased with her eyes. He said "she's out of the woods" and doesn't need to see her for 6 months! This is great news.
The next few hurdles are: get off the ventilator, start eating, and stop draining from the chest tubes. These are BIG hurdles and could take some time. I'll keep you posted on her progress.
