Day 3

Today is a new day! Jane is still very unstable. Her oxygen saturation is all over the place and her blood flow to the lungs is lacking. The doctors are continuing to run tests to try and get a “big” picture of what is going on with her, in addition to her heart defect. On a very good note her urine output finally increased; she actually has too much urine now. This is a good sign that her kidneys are functioning properly so we checked that off the list!

The doctors have decided to move Jane to a new unit, the cardiovascular intensive care unit (cvicu). The nicu is overloaded with babies so they need to do some adjustments. This is actually a good thing because Jane will have her own private room. We all feel this will be beneficial because she is so sensitive to all the stimuli: touch, noise, etc. She may look like a spitting image of her Papa, but no doubt she inherited my feistiness! She doesn’t like to be touched or bothered….that’s one of the reasons her O2 sats keep jumping all over. I am hoping this move to a private room is beneficial for her.

Just a reminder, visitors are welcome but please remember to remain quiet at her bedside, not to touch her, and to wash your hands before coming near.

Blessings to you all as you pour out your love and support to me and Daniel.

    It sounds like a positive move for Jane. I can tell that she is such a sweetheart and feisty like her mom! :) ) Both her looks and her feistiness are blessings from the Lord! We are so grateful that He gave her such devoted parents who know her already and love her so deeply. We love you all so much and keep you constantly in our prayers, especially for Baby Jane!!

    Hi D&E, Thank you so much for the updates on baby Jane. She is constantly in our thoughts and prayers. I woke up thinking of her in the middle of the night and continued to pray for her healing. We are praying for the time when you can take her home in your arms. We continue to ask God for his mercy and grace toward you, that His hands of healing will wrap around your precious daughter and that soon you will be able to exchange all the anxiety and fear into laughter and joy. Sending you our love and prayers, Bill&Tam

    Thank God for that feistiness elisabeth! That trait is going to be very important as Miss Jane keeps fighting and keeps overcoming her obstacles. Go Jane!
