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!
