So, I came in today and they have started weaning Ava again on the vent. She had another x-ray this morning and things looked a little better. She is waiting on an ultrasound because the doctor feels that if there is a good spot to insert a chest tube to release most of the fluid built up than they will do that, I guess to get rid of it faster. They increased her feedings again to 10cc an hour. She received her potassium just a little bit ago and did not like it. The poor baby started throwing it up. I know that when Kaden use to get it, it would upset his stomach too.
So, I am getting really excited because Nate and Kaden are coming up tonight. They should be here sometime after 6pm. I don't know if I can wait that long. We decided that next week we will take Kaden to see Horton Hears A Who. He has been such a trooper through all of this that he deserves it. This will be his first experience at a movie theater. I think he will do fine, he may be a little nervous at first, but I think Nate and I can talk him out of that. We will see. I hope he enjoys it, I know he likes the book and he has seen the previews and says he wants to see it. I don't think he realizes that we will not be watching it at home. It will be fun to see how he reacts to such a large screen!!! Well, I will update more about Ava when I find out more.
