one step backward

Well it was inevitable we were having so much progress and improvement that a day of small setbacks was coming. After being bronched yesterday Gaby's tidal volumes (air her lungs blow back and take in on the ventilator that indicates she can do it on her own eventually) were in the high 20s. By this morning they were at 3. So basically the bronch suctioning the ENT is doing is creating a temporary airflow fix, but not helping long term. Today they are going to try something new. In a couple hours they will fill Gaby's lungs with fluid and then suction it all out, hoping the yucky stuff comes out with the saline fluid.
Macy and I are here in Indy with Gaby for a few days and enjoying our one-on-one time together.


  1. reading and praying for you and your family... the Kings

  2. Could be this will help cleanse her lungs, praying that will happen. Love you.

  3. I will be praying for you guys.

  4. As always your family is in our prayers. Enjoy your one-on-one time with your precious babies.

  5. Praying for you all. Hope this works and you all can come home soon.
