On Vacation

It’s been a little over a week since Eliana started on dialysis.  Things were going so well after the first few days that the doctors decided to plunge ahead with her care, so they took her off the ventilator and started easing her back into bottle feeding.  But all that change at once was a bit too much for her, and she regressed just enough to let the doctors know that she needed to go at it more slowly.

So in a manner of speaking, she got a bit of a vacation.  They put her back on the ventilator for a bit, stopped the bottle feedings (she’s still getting nutrition through an IV line, just no milk), and even stopped dialysis for a couple of days just to let her rest.  Since Thursday they’ve been weaning down her ventilator settings and reintroducing dialysis, and things seem to be going much better.  So here’s to a week of slow, steady progress.
