While her chest x-ray remains unchanged from yesterday, her sensational saturations tell a different story. Therefore Josie was able to graduate from the high-flow cannula...
...to a regular cannula today! Miss Super Sensitive Skin has the bright red welts on her face from the tape removal compliments of Nick ("Black Olives"), the RT. But he inquired about Aunt Leanne so we'll let it slide.
While Josie screamed (and held her breath) all the way through the tape removal, she was 100% sunshine and smiles when it was over.
We are so proud of her progress and we are hopeful that we can leave the PICU soon.
She has received superb care from some of her old friends, namely Nurse Juliana who loves Josie like she's her own. We are extremely grateful that Josie has so many caregivers here in the PICU who are cheering her on and doing their best to make her well again. Even nurses that are not assigned to Josie come in to dote on her.
Sweet Dreams Jelly Bean! We pray that you wake up to clear, healthy lungs!
