Eowyn Update 4
Eowyn has been kind of steady for the most part today .. she's still very sensitive when you touch her or talk to loud in her room but her stats are the same now as they were this morning. She's at 180bpm for her HR and her BP is looking good but thats only after they put her on dopamine to help it come back up. They found out that her blood has bacteria in it, probably from on of the picc lines she has in one of her arms, so they are giving her antibiotic for that .. thats also why she had a fever two nights ago and her HR went up really high. The vent settings are still high, her rate is at 27 breaths per minute and the oxygen they're giving her is at 80%. For now we have to wait it out and see if she can recover from this infection, then if the vent settings come down a bit they want to do the biopsy, even though they think she has a high risk of complications and even death. The doctors are not very encouraging when they talk to us and it's as if they have already sentenced her to death before really knowing what caused her lungs to stop working in the first place. It's not that I haven't considered that she may not make it, bc I have, but she not dead yet and I refuse to give up hope till the Lord decides He wants to take her .. After all "The words of men mean little to me compared to God!!" Like George says "We may be helpless, but we are not hopeless!!" And my hope rests with The Lord.
