weight check

Tonight's weight = 8lb 9 oz. She has lost 4 lbs since Tuesday morning. She only has about 2 lb to get back to her "dry" weight of 6 1/2 lbs. Juliet is continuing to get fluid off and in turn making it much easier to breathe and function. The chest tubes will stay in until they are no longer draining fluid. She will remain on the ventilator until she is back to her "dry" weight. Keep it up, Jules. You're getting there!


  1. So excited to get on the blog tonight and hear continued good news! Keep it up, Juliet! Hoping that you and Chris are finally able to breath a bit too. I am exhausted just thinking about what you both have been through. It's amazing how we find the strength when things get tough. Juliet is very lucky to have you as parents. I'm sure the big sisters are anxious to have a playmate too. Let's hope that all continues to go well and that Juliet has a quick recovery so that she can come home for Christmas! What a great gift that would be.
    Prayers are still on-going for all of you.
    We love you....Aunt Laurie
