And I quote Dr. Law, a genius cautious and reserved heart failure doctor, who is not known around these parts to hand out false hope….said while smiling, ‘she’s doing better than average….her echo looks amazing!’ Wow…I don’t even have the words to fully express what that means to me..to us…to our family. This whole miraculous wonder is absolutely overwhelming to fully soak in. I watch Poppy…I stare at her pink lips, she rests so peacefully-her perfect numbers are a new baseline for her. When she wakes, she is a different baby, so full of excitement and life…I don’t think we are even capable of comprehending what all this glorious gift truly means. Poppy gets a chance of life outside of the hospital because of a dear family blessing her with the most precious gift of life. Thank you Jesus for your perfect timing and gracious provision. Miracles abound. Our God is good and faithful always-we are beyond words elated that God’s will brought Poppy a new heart. We just beam, shed tears of absolute joy and wonder, and attempt to soak in what each new day brings for our precious girl and our family. Thank you all for you prayerful support and generous provision. We feel it literally every day.
The next thing for our girl will be to take the breathing tube out. She has been doing fabulously on her ERTs (extubation readiness tests). Technically she could be extubated, but they are cautious because of her being intubated for so long. Her lungs are getting practice and building strength during these ERTs so that someday soon she can be extubated!!! We are soo excited!! 🙂
She also seems to be tolerating her feeds better, so they are slowly increasing her volumes and switching some of her iv meds over to po meds which go down her nd tube. Exciting progress for our sweet girlie!! Thank you Jesus! Thank you to the amazing doctors and nurses who take such good care of our sweet one. And thank you all for your fervent prayers…it means so much.
