Today was an incredible day. They took Annabel off the muscular paralytic drug. Yes, off! She is doing well and my prayer is that she continues throughout this night. They have also decreased one of her blood pressure drugs and she is doing ok.she actually can open her eyes and has looked at us at times. She doesn't seem near as agitated as I had expected.
They have been able to adjust some numbers on the vent...like oxygen 40%, the peep the want at 0, we began at 12 and now down to 9.0. Keep in mind she was on vent at 100% and they recently adjusted to 40%. so much to be thankful for tonight. Prayers that she will not fight the night. Her fevers are better but they just showed me that her white count is continuing to rise. They bare still not changing her status and saying critically ill. I wish I could thank each and everyone of you for prayers. Please know that I am touched. As much as I wanted to scream at God for hope and improvement, now I want to shout at the top of my lungs for all the hope he has given.
We had a day full of visitors today. My cousins, Leslie,Rodney, and Ashton came to visit after Ashton's eye surgery and Ashton was adamant about seeing Annabel today. We all shared a feast of BBQ together that Michelle, Brian Paul, Brennen, and Carleen provided. A special Thanks to my Sister and my Mom for being with Annabel in the room so I could spend time with everyone. Then everyone took times to see Annabel. I also had three special friends visit today who each have babies in Heaven. Actually when Kim (Mary Grace's mom), and Kenzie (Maddox mom) went in to see Annabel as they were praying she opened her eyes...
Then Michelle,Annabels milk mommy and Vivians Mom( who is also in Heaven), also came to visit and spend time with Annabel today. Tyler and his Superior Officers came with a message that his Company is keeping Annabel in their prayers.
