Janis gave me an update this morning. She said Emily is about the same. The pulmonologist came in and the oxygen level had been at 18%. He lowered it to 10%, but Emily couldn't tolerate it, so he moved it back up to 14% and will leave it there today. They have to get her level at a stable 5% before they can remove the ventilator.
She also told me there was some confusion about Emily's kidney output. She IS producing some output---just not enough. And if it's below normal, the medical professionals just don't count it. So...it's just a waiting game right now. They're trying to limit their visits with Emily because she gets agitated and frustrated---and she just needs to rest.
The two oldest kids are back in school and Emily's friends from her Bible Fellowship group are taking the younger two to childcare with them. And tomorrow, a friend is coming to take those two to Library Hour. Their friends are just amazing!! And it gives Janis a much-needed break. She said she was so happy today when she found the Mylicon (gas drops) in the house for baby Sarah! ha! God bless Mylicon!!
Once again....thank you for praying. We're in awe of how far-reaching the prayers are.
