First, for all you junkies, Nathan plans to post some pictures of Gwyneth with her pug later today.
Gwyneth's eye exam showed no real improvement of the ROP from last week. So another evaluation will be done next week. If there is still no improvement they may do another laser procedure.
Her weight is now a hefty 2lb. 14oz.! Sounds like she's got her Mom's appetite and will be hitting the 3lb. mark in a couple of days.
Tricia has had her ups and downs in the last 24 hours. She walked 1050 ft. today (approx. 2/10 of a mile). During the night she was on the vent for a few hours, but has been off for quite a while today. She's still shooting for 24 hours off. She didn't sleep well again during the night, but was sleeping earlier this afternoon. As you can imagine, sleep in the ICU is tough because of all the necessary attention. Please pray for good sleep.
Her sister Megan spent the morning with her, which is good therapy for Tricia. Another chest tube was removed today! (Sorry, I don't know the count.) She also had bronchoscopy today and things looked great. But her pain meds have given her some nausea, so they have reduced the dosage, which means a little more pain.
Be on the lookout for Gwyneth's latest pics!
