Eowyn Update 14

Eowyn is still doing really good .. Her HR is around 150bpm, her saturation is 96-100%, her oxygen is remaining at 35% because the doctors said oxygen is good for your body and at 35% it's not toxic for her, so for now the oxygen will stay the same and they will only worry about bringing the pressure and general settings of the vent down which they have been able to do yesterday and again this morning. Also, they turned off her Lasix drip and will now be giving it to her every 6 hours like they were doing before she turned into Miss Butterball. The RT (Sam) came in and brought the Nitric Oxide down from 20 to 15 so slowly everything is coming down and I am just so looking forward to the day I can hold her. I had her smiling again this morning after I got her to calm down and stop crying, the nurse () suctioned Eowyn and she didn't like it. You can't hear her cry (because of the breathing tube) but that doesn't mean you don't know when she's mad and crying, it's so cute and sad at the same time. Then I rubbed her head and helped her fall asleep, which is what she's still doing .. I should be doing that to because who couldn't use a good nap from time to time! So for now everything seems to be the same and that's fine with me, rather be here with her doing good then back where we were a week ago. God is so good and I am so thankful for what He is continuing to do in the life and body of Eowyn and in myself .. Trials are good from time to time because they help to show you how far you have drifted from God and how much closer you could be to Him. Please continue to pray for her, for complete healing in her body. Also pray for CJ and Jesse as they are sick right now and with them sick it causes us to be at a higher risk of getting sick ourselves .. If Caleb or I get sick we won't be able to come to the hospital to be with Eowyn and we will be asked to leave the Ronald McDonald house. God is in control and I know He is the best judge for this situation so we will continue to lean on Him and seek His will in everything!!

Also the nurse told me that as far she knows the ECO is still on for tomorrow. Please be praying tomorrow that they will get some great images and it will show healing in her lungs, that the hypertension is healed or has decreased drastically .. I'll let you know what happens tomorrow, God Bless!
