? x1

That means, this is my first follow up regarding the post titled, "?". It's been 2 days since I wrote that, and things really aren't much clearer over here, except for this..she *is* sick. She got a little worse, pretty much needing 02 consistently now, but she can get by on 1 liter for awhile, but never needing more than 2. She was off the 02 for a short time today, however... long enough to take a bath and kind of watch her to see what she does. If she is able to be on room air, it's momentarily, and she only sats at 93-94... then she will drop back to the mid-high 80's. Jessica, ( her nurse ) has been beautifully aggressive with her. She did the Theravest 3 times in an 8 hour period. The vest goes on like a life jacket, inflates like a blood pressure cuff, and vibrates and shakes so the lungs get jostled and helps in clearing the gunk from the sacs. I have mentioned it before, but it really is such a great medical tool, really makes a difference! She is not ready to go to the hospital yet, and hopefully, will not need to. I THINK we may be able to escape a trip with this illness. Her chest sounds clear pretty good with a hearty cough and deep suctioning. She is a comfortable girl, not agitated at all, nor have her seizures increased due to this illness. So all in all.. things are pretty mild over here. :)
