The doctors have started to "ween" her of her ventilator. They said that kids with big tummy's like Harmonees breath faster then normal, because of this she gets tired faster and needs to work her lungs into having no support. I am still a little nervous about her going off of it.
Harm's sun tan is coming back, and she looks the best she has since we got admitted. She has completely turned around from the day that we signed the DNR The PICU team has saved her more then once this hospital stay, and has gotten her back to where we could discontinue it!
I over heard Dr. B talking to the surgical team about a potential donor for Harmonee today. But that was the last I heard about it. Just now one of her assistance brought operation papers to put in her chart. Lets hope this is the weekend!
Harmonee got a good scrub today. It was a better sponge bath then we have been able to give her since she was off dialysis for a while so they could clean the machine. She actually smells like a baby! All clean and ready for surgery!
