Overall, Hana spent this Valentine’s Day as a day of rest and evaluation. They started her on some of my breastmilk in her feeding tube. She had an arterial line inserted in her right arm, which I believe is mostly used to draw blood from (multiple times a day). They turned off the epinephrine she was getting to help her heart pump. They continue to wean her off of her ventilator.
Tonight they will pull her Femoral Line (now that she has the arterial line) and do some swabs for testing. It seems that the plan is to make her as well as possible (of course) but the road is probably still leading to a heart transplant. The baby in her adjoining room is getting a heart transplant tonight.
Our Little Valentine!
