Today is another victorious day! Emma had an ECHO yesterday to check her PDA and it is still open, so they are going to start her on another round of Neoprofen to close it. We believe that God will close this PDA and she will not need the surgery. They did a another sputum culture and it did not grow anything, which is AWESOME! Emma continues to only get back to 10 cc every three hours and caffiene once a day. They continue to limit her fluid intake until the PDA closes up and then they will be able to increase her feedings again. She is now getting 28 calorie breast milk/formula.
This is day two of our new schedule and it seems to be working much better. I am able to be with Boomer (our dog) at our house and get in a better routine which includes more rest. I call in the mornings and check in on our sweet pea to see how she is doing and then we get another report when we get there in the afternoons. Please continue to pray this will work for us and help me to continue to rest which should increase my milk supply.
God continues to show us his healing power. He has healed her chest infection and we believe he will heal her PDA and move forward to get Emma Claire off of the ventilator. What a mighty God we serve!!
