Casey did really great last night, but her X-ray this morning was bad. Not only is her left lung worse, but her right side is also showing more problems now. She also had breathing / heart rate issues this morning and then spiked a fever. They have started her on antibiotics for a possible infection and switched her off bipap to a larger vent machine. It still uses a mask (she is NOT intubated), but is capable of managing her breathing better. She is on it non-stop, and is being a real trooper even though you can tell she is exhausted and uncomfortable. We are still staying on top of pain meds without it making her too lethargic, so she can help with coughs and treatments. She really is amazingly doing everything we ask of her. We hope for a better X-ray tomorrow so
we can at least give her a break to relax.
