Day 13...

The doctors have started to let Harmonee eat 5cc every hour on a continuous drip through and NJ tube. (NJ- goes down nose into intestines--keeps her from vomiting). This is pretty good considering she was eating 7cc every hour through her NG at home before we came to the ICU.
Harm has been being a good girl all day. She has kept all of her blood labs and stats in good range, making the doctors even talk about taking her off a ventilator completely in a few days! They have started to do her spontaneous breathing intervals where the ventilator lets her do all of the breathing.
All in all Harmonee is doing great! Best day she has had since we arrived in the ICU!
