Kisses for Daddy
Sarah was there for "Rounds" with the Doctors this morning and basically not much has changed. They have decided to pull the Central Line from her chest (equal to the old Broviac) and place another one in the failed site in her right groin. The chest drainage tube appears to be blocked and they are planning to send someone from Radiology to manage that. While the blood clot seems to pretty much have disipated, there appears to be some air in the cavity. The doctors are working endlessly to attempt to sedate Ellie with meds and to juggle the medications with all their side effects and contraindications. They are still planning (hoping) for extubation Monday, sometime.
A heartfelt "thank you" to you all - Loretta
After a long night of movement and struggle with Ellie, John was awarded one precious "daddy" moment this morning. Ellie reached up and put her arms around John's neck, she pulled him close to her face, and tried to kiss him 3 little kisses, and then she mouthed the words "I love you".
