11/26/09 Turkey Day

We spent a little time with Juliana this afternoon before heading all the way home for Thanksgiving. She continues to do well. Her vent pressure was turned down to 15 over 5 and her oxygen continues to be in the 20-30s. They are slowly weaning her rate of respiration every 12 hours. While we were there, they turned it down from 46 to 44 breaths per minute. They hope to continue with this until they can get it into the 20s and get her off the vent. She also will go on some caffeine soon to get her ready to breathe on her own. Her blood pressure has held steady, and if it continues, we may see the start of some feeding soon. It very much feels like we’re moving into a new phase for her care and growth. Feels good.
