Slowly but surely...

Every day gets a bit better than the last. The pain meds have been decreased a bit although she still gets Tylenol 3 and morphine. She's been a bit more alert. Her heart sounds good according to the cardiologist. I was hoping she'd be off the ICU by now and up on the pediatric unit, but they're still being cautious. The atelectasis is still in her left lung and is now also in her right. The doctor said he wants the atelectasis to at least start improving before they would move her to the pediatric floor and I am fine with that. I'm glad they're overly cautious. Her temperature has been fine today and she even started on formula. So if we can just get these lungs inflated, we'll be doing great!
