I’ll be heading back to KC later this evening as Lydia remains stable and Clay will stay with her this week. They have her on a slow and tedious wean of decreasing medications and vent settings. So far she has been off all the IV blood pressure meds since last night and is doing well. Her nitric oxide is down from 40% to 5% and will hopefully be off by tonight. This week the goal is to let her come off the paralytics, decrease some vent settings, get a Broviac line (for IV meds and blood draws) and test out the vent the she would transport on. If she does well, she could be coming back to the PICU in KC as early as next week. She’ll likely still have a fairly long recovery there but it will be nice to have her in the same city where we can all be with her on a daily basis. Thanks for the continued prayers for our little warrior princess.
