Gabrielle is home once again and doing great! Her respiratory rate has slowed tremendously thanks to the lasix and the breathing treatments. The docs all concluded that she had a virus of some kind and is definitely recovering. We have a follow up appt with Dr. Rao in Milwaukke next week and our pediatrician tomorrow. We also had the home nurse over yesterday afternoon and she said that Gabi sounded good and looked nice and pink. She unfortunately came home on O2 but it should be only for a week or so. She hates that nasal cannula and continues to pull it off her face. The docs said when she is sleeping is the most important time to have the O2 on.
She is once again smiling and trying her hardest to babble. Ethan took this video of her when she got home.
We had our friends, the Buchmann’s (Carsyn’s parents) over yesterday and it was great to visit with them. They are continuing to plan for the auction on March 6th. If anyone has anything to donate for the benefit, let me know. All proceeds go to the cardiac floor at CHW. The plans for the funds include: a Wii for the older cardiac kids in the playroom for theraputic use, additional bouncy seats and swings that were made in this decade, lots of toys that PT and OT need, and the majority of the funds will go towards building the garden outside the cafe at CHW. I am so excited for this event. If you want to attend, please let me know, there are plenty of seats available. Thanks to Anne R and Rachel for their donations!
Thanks for checking in. Love to you all.
