Well Madeline has had a pretty rough go at it the past few days. Poor thing, she has another lung infection. I am not sure how well the steroids are gonna work for her. Steroids are like a wild card, you play it at the right time and it can really turn the tables, but you can only play that card so many times. They were working for a half a day improving her lungs but now I don’t know how the infection plays into that.
Pray for Madeline, pray, pray, pray. My poor girl looks so tired from all of this. One of the side effects of the steroids is getting wired like you’ve had too much coffee. I can see that in Madeline now, she get’s agitated more easily. Lately, when they suction her she has been bradying again and dropping her sats really low.
We met with the new neonatologist on Monday. His name is Dr. Kinsella, he is world renown in the field of poulmonology. He is real smart and has a very academic approach to the vent management and was able to explain a lot to Lisa and I. I told him we need to get Madeline off the vent and he is here for 3 weeks so let’s see what we can do.
Please pray for Madeline tonight if you can, and pray for her tomorrow and the next day. She really needs it now to help her get over this infection and the side effects of the steroids. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. I feel our mighty God move into action when your prayers go up to Him.
Shanker & Lisa.
