maybe another trial off today or surgery tomorrow




Well Ireland looks really good today. She is getting pretty skinny so we are getting our real first look at what she really is going to look like. They talked today at the morning meeting about lower some of her ECMO stuff to prepare her for another trial off maybe this afternoon. Dr. Barnhardt who will do her surgery really wants her to do a couple of hrs.. more like 4-6 this time and have really good numbers or he doesn't want her to come off ECMO until after the surgery. So if the trial off goes well he may wait until Friday or Sat to try surgery. If its not so well he wants to do surgery tomorrow.. So we are just waiting to see how things go until this afternoon. Here is a pic of her today. she's kinda squishy in the pic. think she is sick of ECMO!!! lol

  8. I think this blog is so wonderful. You are so great at keeping everyone in the loop and in a strange way it makes ya feel like your little Ireland is a little bit ours too. I bet there isn't a person reading that doesn't feel love for your little button nosed ball of baby! I know I do.

    Stay strong, Tree
