03-18-12 UPDATE – CPMC/CHONY PICU – Day 11

Monday morning 9:30AM is the scheduled time for Faith’s procedure.

The weekend has been good so far, her O2 levels have been remaining high as they back off support from the ventilator. They are also changing up the sedation/pain medications to shorter acting ones so when we are ready to wake her they are mostly clear. They started her on Methadone and Ativan on day 6 to help her deal with the narcotics withdrawal she otherwise would have suffered from (They surely didn’t do that 17 years ago for poor Jonathan, he went cold turkey).

Thank you to everyone for the generous and plentiful outpouring of food and to my wonderful daughters for their preparation and cleaning up of the meals.
