The afternoon/evening was better. OT got her sitting up and she stayed there for 1/2 an hour playing on the keyboard and using play dough.
Both of her IVs blew at the same time, but they were able to get another in with ultrasound. Her hemoglobin was a bit better, which made us happy.
She was quite feisty all evening and her number one complaint of all is the STICKER for the c02 monitor they have on her (an alternative to constant blood gases, which I explained to her multiple times). I told her of all the things she had going on, that wasn't a big deal! The nurses and staff quite enjoy her. :).
She slept well on the bipap and her respiratory rate was in the 30s with just a few desats. This was a huge improvement from the night before. Things are looking up and will hopefully continue to improve!
