RE: Paiges corner
Wow, what a Christmas it would be! I don't know if it will happen but just being on the mend is great news. We are taking up a collection, medical tools for tots! lol Smile

Hello family and friends,
Paige is showing us more every day that she is on the mend. She has made huge strides in the past few days, including breathing on her own without no extra oxygen whatsoever; and started taking bottles today. Also, her external pacemaker has been unplugged, since her normal heart rate has been above the rate her doctors wanted her to be at.
At the same time, she is growing -- all those extra calories her heart had been burning up are now going toward making her bigger.
Every day we hold her, read to her and let her play with toys. Some of her favorite playthings are medical supplies like syringes and gauze wrappers, but she also enjoys playing with books, a singing/talking camera, and her baby "shake weight" rattle.
In two days, two of her three sedatives will be turned off. In a week, the final one could be gone. Those are the main things keeping her in the ICU. After they are gone, she will go to the general floor then, after that, home.
We are not sure yet what the plan will be as far as taking a look, so to speak, at how her heart is handling the patches. An echo last week didn't really show anything noteworthy. Usually they send a catheter with a camera and pressure sensor into the patient's heart to look around before the patient is sent home. We'd like to avoid such a procedure, but we'll see.
That's all for today! Thanks for checking in. Looking forward to seeing you all.
-Chris
