Today was eventful, in both good ways and bad.
Good: Lily was extubated (got her breathing tube taken out) today.
Bad: Since she is no longer sedated, she has been super squirmy. This evening she pulled out her arterial line and one of her IVs, leaving her with only one remaining IV. That is simply not enough for all the medication she is getting, so around midnight they did a procedure to place a new central line in her thigh. Poor thing. They tried so hard to get IVs in ANYWHERE else...but it just wasn't happening. She cried pitifully the whole time they tried (about an hour). She also has congestion in her lungs and they ended up giving her a few breathing treatments plus "chest PT", a fancy name for thumping her on the back :). They've been suctioning her nose so much that she's having constant nosebleeds now.
Rob's mom is spending the night with her while I get a few hours of sleep back at the Ronald McDonald House. We didn't expect to have to switch to "shift duty" today, so please pray for us and for Lily.
