Doing Better

After a rough night Sunday night, with sats only in the upper 80s/lower 90s with 8 liters of oxygen in her bipap, I took Waverly to the doctor on Monday and in for a chest x-ray. She was wheezing so badly that you could hear it just walking into the room. I was nervous they would send her to the hospital, but her x-ray actually looked ok (for her). We increased pulmicort (steroid) nebulizer to twice a day to try to help her lungs open up some, and increased the Robinul to help dry up her secretions more, and that seemed to help. She's still quite junky, but doing much better, and was even able to be off oxygen a little bit yesterday. Thanks for praying for her, and please continue to pray that she recovers more and gets back to baseline for her!

UVA update and sick

Sorry I didn't update after our UVA visit. There wasn't a lot to update with that, other than the doctor and I discussed a few medications, and he basically said to research which one we wanted to try and let him know. So, I've been working on that this week. After we got home from the trip, she got sick the next day with respiratory stuff. She's struggled all week, but hasn't been too too sick. Over the weekend, however, she's needed even more oxygen and last night her sats were only in the low 90s with 8 liters of oxygen on her bipap. So, this afternoon we are heading in for a chest x-ray and doctor visit. Please pray for wisdom, if she is ok to come back home or if she needs to head over to the hospital for more treatment. Thank you!
