Our little fighter just keeps fighting on

8/5/08 I left Skyla last night at 11pm. I didnt want to but i was so exhausted. I was still at the hospital just 2 floors above Skyla. I rang down at 1am, 4am, and 6am. She was being really good. Her sats dropped a bit and they had to bag her twice because of secretions in her trachy but other than that she had a really good night. I came back down to her this morning a 630am. Still improving which is great. She even opened her eyes again this morning. She just keeps on surprising everyone. The nurses didnt expect her to be here when they came in for the night shift last night. They couldnt believe how well she looked. I just got told that the Dr rounds are over so i better head back up now to see her. She may have her first trachy change today and may even be stable enough to go to theatre's. If thats the case then after that is done they will be able to take her off the muscle relaxant so she will then be able to wake up. My social worker just told me that the Drs cant believe how well she is doing. That just made my day. I know we arent out of trouble yet but she just keeps on proving to everyone how much of a fighter she really is. Im so proud of you darling. Im so proud that you are my daughter and just remember that we all love you very much and everyone out there is praying for you.
