So, overnight she didn't settle much. This morning her lungs are a little more collapsed again. The ECMO circuit has already gotten pretty clogged with fibrin and clots. The doctors want to keep after getting her lungs open more and moving towards stopping ECMO. For that, Esther needs to show more sustained improvement in her lungs. On a good note, her swelling has come down tremendously and her abdomen is a little less tight. However, she did have a little blood in her stomach tube last night.
So, a little good (we have another day to be with our beautiful daughter) and some not so good. It is what we have been told to expect and have not had to deal with for a few days.
We continue to trust in the Lord that His plans for us are good. We lift up all you prayer warriors out there to receive sustaining strength and peace from the Holy Spirit to continue the battle for God's glory. To Him be all the glory forever, amen.
