So far,so good. For the last 8 hours, Bella has been negative. Good! We have got to get rid of this swelling!
She didn’t like the echo, she kept desating. So they had to turn her O2 up to 100% for a while. We are slowly working down. We are at 90 now. They are going to leave her Nitric alone for now – maybe go down to 4 late this afternoon. Her BNP is again higher, but still under 100 (83). I don’t have the results of the ECHO yet, but I heard (and wasn’t supposed to hear) was she didn’t see much change from the ECHO on 7th. We’ll wait for the final report to know for sure.
The good Father came and talked with me today. He prayed over our girl. I’m not Catholic, but I surely appreciated the Father’s kindness. He recognized my face and knew that we had been here a long time. What a kind and gentle man. He invited me to Mass on Wednesday, which I thought was sweet.
I am seriously considering staying over tonight – yes, that means sleeping in my super comfy chair. Bella has been having problems every night and recovering during the day. She needs a good night – several in fact. :)
In case you are wondering, no surgeries, of any kind this week.
