Paiges corner
As this little fighter goes round and round I thought I'd start a cheering section in her corner from the grill. Go get em' kid! Angel
Here is an update from 11/12

Pee Paigey Pee!

Well it's been a busy couple of days for Paige. Our little fighter keeps the doctors and nurses on their toes.There has been much deliberation as to what courses of action will benefit Paige the most and keep her on the road to recovery.

The pacemaker is still in place and keeping her heart rate elevated at around 150. Apparently that's the rate that keeps her heart the happiest as her left ventricle deals with it's new roommate....the patch.

Sedation has been her best friend and worst enemy at times. The two new doctors on this rotation have developed a sedation plan that is much "cleaner" and will hopefully allow them to decrease the continuous IV pain/sedation medication that allows her lungs to take a vacation at times and rely moreso on the ventilator. With extubation high on the priority list we can't have any medications knocking out her respiratory drive. I'm very happy with the new plan and I think Paige will be breathing more on her own and on her way to a tube free day!

As I so eloquently stated in the Title...we want Paige to pee like crazy! Her lungs are pretty wet from a stiff left ventricle and from fluids given to her to assist her blood pressure at times. We want them as dry as possible before we try to wean her her off the ventilator. They started a Bumex drip today, a potent diuretic, to assist the other meds she's getting to help her pee. So far she is responding well and we hope to see a less puffy Paige in the morning. She's on her way!

Meanwhile, Paige is still herself. She grabs and flicks at IV tubing, electrode wires and anything else she can get her hands on. She is also showing us other little quirks that let us know she's in there. It's reassuring.

Well, that's what I've got for you tonight! Thanks for staying tuned. If you think of it could you please send some positive thoughts/prayers/juju this way for Paige's neighbor and his family who are having a hard time right now. Thanks everyone!

Love from the Engles,
