3 Arrests in 24hrs, Drs dont think she will make it
7/5/08 The Drs think Skyla is in septic shock. They really wanted to take her central line out because they think that its the line that is causing all the problems. They have tried and tried to get lines in to her little body but all her veins are had it. She also has pneumonia on the left lung and another infection in her trachy. Over the last few days they have probably tried heaps of times to get a line into her. Over the last 24 hrs she has arrested 3 times. Her last arrest was at 6am this morning. They sat down with us and pretty much told us that she isnt going to make it. I am devastated. They say that they will do everything they can to save her but the more she arrests the more damage it is doing to her little body and the harder it will be to bring her back if she arrests again. Please pray for my beautiful little Skyla. After her 6am arrest she has had a pretty good day. Her BP has stayed up and her sats have been ok. She is on alot of support on the vent. O2 70 peep 7 rate 35 and pc^peep 18. At about 4pm today a guy from radiology department came up with his ultrasound machine to see if they could find a vein for a new line. We had SUCCESS! They were able to get a line in so that they can take out the one out. I was very happy. She is on so many antibiotics at the moment trying to cover the infections. Tonight she opened her eyes for the first time in about 5days. She has been muscle relaxed because she has a new trachy. She seems like she is much better already. The Drs were happy they got a line in but have told us we are not out of the woods yet. We just have to keep praying that Skyla continues to keep on fighting. The way she has done already she aint going anywhere without a fight. You are so so strong darlin. Just keep fighting. We love you hunny.
