Asher had a good night, he continues to stay stable. They have turned off the Fentanyl (a sedative), and started him on Lasix (a diuretic).So currently he is on: Digoxin, Milrinone, Calcium Chloride, DEX (which has been lowered), Lasix, and Hydrocortisone. They are supplementing his Magnesium and Pottasium as needed. He still has the 3 chest tubes and one drain in his belly. They just removed his RV line, which measures pressures in his right ventricle. They plan on taking out his LA line in an hour; it measures pressures in his Left Atrium. They are giving him morphine periodically for pain. Later in the day, they plan on removing his ventilator. Yay! Progress! Adam is leaving to go back to Utah at 1pm; he's glad to see Tay and Jon, sad to leave Ash and myself. It will be lonelier for me, but I'm glad the kids will have daddy back. Ronald Mcdonald called last night, saying tehy have room for me. The family I'm staying with graciously offered to let me stay there, so I'm just going to stay put. I'm getting attached to Lilly, Ayva and little Naomi! I will update later in the day, after the vent ius removed. Love you all, thank you for all of your love, mnessages, help, and support.
