Goodbye Oscillator, Hello Conventional

They took Harmonee off the oscillator ventilator and put her on a conventional ventilator. She did great during the switch, and as stubborn as she is... she kept trying to breath on her own and not with there help. They thought that was pretty funny, but a good sign as well! They said that her trying to breath, along with how her lungs sounded, meant that her lungs aren't as diseased and failed as they were thinking.
Today is also day 11 in the PICU, day 11 on dialysis AND Harmonee's 7 month birthday! As all the doctors come in to say "Happy 7 months" they give us the hope of a liver next week! Not one of them with anymore doubts. I have heard that Dr. Book is pretty good at tracking down livers, so I'll leave it to her.



  1. That is GREAT news!! I am so glad that she keeps improving, she is a fighter! Happy 7 months sweet baby girl!! Lets get you a liver and get you back on the road to recovery.
