Last night, she spiked a fever but never spiked another one. As a precaution they started her on an antibiotic. She went for her swallow study and she does aspirate, so now she can only have thickened liquids. But, they want us to repeat the study in 4-6wks, everyone believes it is only temporary. Fingers crossed!
Blood pressure continues to be an issue but is more under control today and they are going to up her next dose of bp med. So, I think in the next day or so it should be under control.
Now, another mystery.............Why is Callie requiring so much oxygen? Her xray continues to improve, but her requirement for oxygen is still the same. Please pray this resolves itself and we don't have to think anymore about it.
Your prayers are still needed, she still has the couple of hurdles to get over. This trip has been so mentally draining, I can't even begin to find the words to describe it.
