Up until they sedated her to put in the central line, Julianne had been on 1/2 liter of oxygen and her saturations were in the 70's/80's! Since she was sedated they bumped her back up to 1 liter just to be safe.
Julianne's color is coming back and she was awake, looking around, and slowly grabbing at her toys a couple of times today! I even caught a glimpse of a smile this evening.
As of right now, she'll remain in the CICU for the weekend and continue to be watched closely. On Monday they'll do another echo to check to see if her function has improved. They'd considered doing one today, but felt it was too soon and they wouldn't see any improvement.
Dr. Breitbart said he feels that the medications are helping her. We are excited and thankful for that. Please pray for Julianne's continued improvement. :)
Thank you for checking in! Goodnight . :)
