Abby is an Enigma

Well, we're still here.  Abby had a great night and I was very encouraged.  But then she had high rates throughout the day, including a respiratory rate of 95 after walking just halfway around the unit.  We are going to try stairs tomorrow to see what she does with that.  

But they can't figure out any rhyme or reason to her high RRs, as they sometimes happen when she is hustling lying in bed.  The one pattern we have identified is that she does better right after a respiratory treatment, but that is to be expected.  I can't limit any movement to only immediately after treatments!!  

I'm hoping for answers tomorrow...and to see our pulmonologist.
