The night was good-they all 3 slept all night! This morning they took out one drain tube and the ART (neck) line. They will be moving her out of ICU as soon as a room is available. Thank you Lord for your mercies and Ella's recovery so far!
-They had to give her morphine to take out the drain tube and it is making her tummy upset. She is spitting up quite a bit. Pray she will begin eating better-so far she isn't eating too well today.
-She is still on 100% oxygen and 3 liters of pressure. Pray for her to be weaned off that.
-She finishes her antibiotic this afternoon. Pray against infection after that. She will be out of ICU on the regular floor, so she will be exposed to more germs. It is still very important that she not get sick!
-Her right diaphragm is elevated. This should take care of itself-pray it will!
-She is still on a lot of lasix to help empty her bladder. Pray they can begin reducing that.
-They are stopping another pain medicine today so she will only be on Tylenol for the pain. Pray that Tylenol will do the job.
Again, our family thanks you all so much for your prayers, God is hearing them and answering them! Praise the Lord! We appreciate you praying for these requests for sweet Ella today.
