Out of the PICU

The transfered Seraph out of the PICU.  She is still very sick, but they feel like she's stable enough to be out of the ICU.  They haven't voiced any concerns about her heart so far.  They just put her back on her diuretics (the meds that make her pee off extra fluids).  They haven't started her formula yet.  She's still having diarrhea.

The silver lining in this whole thing is that she's discovered an instinct to drink Pedialyte from a bottle.  She drinks the whole 2 ounces (that's all they're allowing her to have orally) in just a few minutes.  This is a HUGE step forward.  Before this she wasn't taking anything orally.

Her team is doing everything they can to protect that new-found drinking instinct.  Hopefully she'll come home drinking her daytime feeds from a bottle :)

I'm off to see her - please keep her in your prayers.

Great news! When do they expect her to come home? Would it be better for my hunny to come to your place for a look see downstairs while Seraph is still away?

That's great news that your daughter has made some positives strides. I hope that diarrhea subsides. Good look.

I talked to your mom last night and she said that Seraph tells you everything that's wrong! What a good mom you are. Sorry it's hard.
