Paiges corner

RE: Paiges corner
Paige and her parents, Chris and Chelsey,have been fighting this battle for 11 months now. She is showing signs of improvement but she's not out of the woods yet. Not by a long shot! She is hanging tough every day. Team Paige is there every minute and so are Chris and Chelsey.
Sing us a song Paige! Hmmmm...Hmmmmm

Well Paigey is still extubated and had a decent, but very busy day. Her blood gases and chest x-ray have remained stable and she is trying to find her voice again with little "hums" here and there.

Not long after extubation she began to retract and use her accessory muscles to breathe. It was concerning because she had done this last week and eventually needed to be intubated. To make sure she doesn't lose ground Team Paige went into action! She was given Atrovent, a bronchodilator in the form of a nebulizer to help open her airways as well as a Racemic Epinephrine treatment to take care of any inflammation caused by the breathing tube. Her retractions improved after that and she rested more comfortably.

They performed an echo to study the movement of her diaphragm and had the ENT crew take a peek at her too. Right now the plan is to keep watching her, give Atrovent every 6 hours and a Racemic Epi treatment if she needs it. For right now she looks great.

At this point Paigey is becoming more alert. She tracks people coming and going around her bed and recognizes mom and dad. Her nurse found a mobile with a fish, jellyfish and seahorse to hang over her bed. She loved to swat at that thing! She actually feels good enough to find and pull at the tubes in her nose....yikes! She also has a pillow that staff members have been signing for her that she is currently trying to stuff in her mouth. haha Actually it's making her smile! So nice to see.

Here's hoping she has a fantastic night and a great chest x-ray in the morning!

We appreciate all your support!

Love,
Chelsea <3

Earlier: At this moment Paige is rearing and ready to come off the ventilator.
Send some encouragement her way!
Will update later.
