I can't say much. Chanda and I have had to worst day ever here... Her morning try off ECMO went so wrong that we haven't stopped crying since then. Her poor little lungs filled with blood and we just about lost her.... They have put Ireland on a whole new ECMO machine now and we've really been told that if they can't get her off of it "soon" that we aren't looking at a very good outcome. It sucks that the machine that is keeping her alive is also her worst enemy because of the blood thinners that have to be used with it she is just bleeding every time they try to take her off. We are just at a lose right now. We still have hope but now the fear is very very real to us. She did very well on the transfer to the new machine and they were going to use less blood thinners to try and curb they bleeding and for now it seems like it has worked. They next 3-4 days will be hell, but whatever the result I love Chanda more than anything and we will be there for each other no matter what. Hope they can just let Ireland rest up and pray the next try will be the one.. LOVE YOU IRELAND!!!!!!!!!!!!
