Hana’s progress is moving along. They took off the CPAP mask and switched to high flow. Tomorrow morning she will hopefully get switched to regular nasal cannula. She is still weaning from the versed and they will continue to turn that down every six hours when she gets a dose of Ativan. They will start weaning the precedex tomorrow which will be the last drip to take off. This can cause low heart rate so they will have to watch her carefully when they start to wean her and they are starting her carvedilol today.
Hana is actually getting bored! She is using her voice a bit and even smiling! We bought a ukulele yesterday and are starting to play for her. She doesn’t seem satisfied with much – I think she wants to get out of bed! The physical therapist and occupational therapist came by today and started to do a few things with her, like get her sitting up, which is very wobbly and not yet possible without support. Hopefully soon!
Thank you for all the wonderful support! It’s a little hard to believe that Christmas is so soon!
