No More Epi!!!

We got a phone call at 7:30 this morning in our little room at the hospital. First, anytime the nurses call you in your room you get a little nervous to pick it up. However, we are glad we did, she informed us that Gabi has been taken off of her Epinepherin. The reason that is such a big deal is because that is her blood pressure medicine. She has been taken completely off of it and still maintaining good vitals! Wooohoooo. I think sissy must of done the Pee Pee dance at home last night cause Gabi had 4cc's per Kilo and she only requires 1cc per Kilo! Let the pee pee flow! haha I guess she also had a little gas and doody last night too which means her insides are working again. Our next big step is going to be getting her off of the venilator so she can breathe on her own. They think this might take a couple of days, but in the mean time they are going to stop giving her so much sedation so she can be more alert and start allowing her to do more of the work. Oh, I almost forgot...they are also going to almost double her formula intake because she is doing so good. So we are definitely getting on the right path to some normalcy.

Of course it will be a couple days before the breathing tube comes out, and a couple more days before she is off of the rest of her medications. Gabi will still be in the PICU more than likely until the end of this week so July 12th or 13th best case scenario. One of the nurses thought we would still be here around the 23rd of the hospital not necessarily PICU. We are taking major steps in the right directions but it is just going to take a lot of major steps for us to get out of the hospital! ;-). Either way we are so excited as I'm sure many of you are as well. Keep us in your prayers as we will keep all of you in ours.

Jason, Micah, Gracie, Gabi
