Prayer Request

Abby's carbon dioxide levels are very high, and her left lung is diminished and not moving very much air.  Respiratory worked with her pretty much throughout the night, but there hasn't been much success.  

She got another chest X-ray done this morning and the doctors are taking a look and discussing her now. They may move the tube back again like they did yesterday to see if that helps.  They will also most likely be going up on her vent settings. 

This is all too familiar...I'm having flashbacks to the nicu! 

So our specific prayer requests today are for her CO2 levels to decrease and for her left lung to start working better!  

On a positive note, take a look at my girl! Her swelling has significantly decreased since yesterday!


Thanks for praying for Abby!
