Miss Smiles

SmilesLucy had fun playing in her bouncy seat today, but just can't seem to catch a break. She hasn't been feeling well today and currently has a slight fever, so she'll be treated with two very strong antibiotics to be cautious against risk of infection. Her pulmonary edema has slightly improved for the past several days after changing the dosages of diuretics to increase the excretion of fluid in her lungs.

Lucy is also back on vapotherm, which delivers a high flow of oxygen to assist with her breathing and prevent tachypnea (increased rate of breathing) and an increased work of breathing. By definition, Lucy is in congestive heart failure. because the cardiac output is low and insufficient for her body's needs.

She may require another cardiac catheterization that will provide a very detailed look at her heart and other anatomy.

Been following your blog for awhile now and even though I'm a stranger, I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing Lucy strength and good health and good vibes and good everything. I want to wrap you all up and give you big big hugs.
