Went Well

The cath went well. Dr. Kaine said her heart was looking good, considering. So they are pretty sure that it is not her heart that is keeping her from coming off of the vent. We also know that it probably isn't her diaphragm either (although that was a good thought Karen...thanks). Her diaphragm seems to be in working condition after the doctor's read the ultrasound. So now I just hope she can come off whenever they are ready to try again. I just really want it to be a week that she hasn't had to deal with withdrawal issues, fevers, agitation...you know, stuff that she has been dealing with.

Tomorrow is my much anticipated spa day!!! I am so excited and nervous at the same time. I can't wait but I am nervous to leave Miss Ava for part of the day. One good thing is that her primary nurse will be here. I will call in the morning to see how she is doing before I leave and pray that she is having a good morning. Well, I guess by the time I post tomorrow I will be a new, refreshed woman!!!

Glad to hear the tests went well. She will be strong enough to come off, she is taking her sweet time! Sometimes our kids like to see how far they can push mommy and daddy...not a very nice thing to do. We will say some extra prayers for her tonight. You definitely deserve a day of pampering...ENJOY!!!
Love and Prayers, along with a big hug too!

Amy you enjoy your well deserved day of spa treachment from Jen. Jen you are such a sweetie for doing this. Give Amy the works because we all know she is more than deserving of it, and Amy try to relax, I know it will be hard to do since you will be thinking of Ava but just remember the nurses will be there to take good care of her and we will all be sending out good thoughts and prayers for her and guardian angels to watch over her while you are getting a little much deserved pampering.
It is good news to hear that the Dr says her heart check up is good and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary with her diaphragm.
Praying daily for Ava's strength and well being. Hugs and kisses to all and a special hug to you Amy.
