Change in Meds...

The doctors decided to stop giving Gabi one of her heart meds. This should help her blood vessels relax. Her blood pressure is a little low, that is why they turned off this med. The med they turned off helps the blood flow to the extremties and keeps her warm. She was plenty warm, if she gets cold then they will turn it back on. She is also getting another echo today to reevaluate. It has been a while since she has had one so they want to be sure they didn't miss anything. Meaning sometimes things can change and they want to be sure they are doing all they can. They are also going to increase her nutrion she gets per hour and in turn decrease her chest tube output replacement.

Well they turned off her heart med. about a hour an hour ago, blood pressure was low, but now we are back up again. Slowly but surely we are making progress. I just wish I could speed up the process, I am so tired of being here, but hey it could be worse. I am just pleased that everyday we are seeing things change...for the better. Even if it is just the smallest amount of progress it will all come together and she will be my happy, smiling, rolling over baby :)

I love you so much and you are such an amazing woman...not exactly sure how I tricked you into marrying me but I'm pretty impressed with myself on that one! haha.
