Patience is a Virtue??
Well lots of little things going on with Avery Mae but nothing as far as the big picture is concerned. She is still on lots of medications at high doses and is still very fragile and considered critical. Her heart is still going strong and her oxygen is at 40% now. They also have taken out a chest tube and removed some arterial lines. Today they made braces for her wrists and ankles so she does not develop shortened tendons. She is still on general antibiotics because of high risk of infection with all of the open wounds. The heart doctor will possibly take out the chest separator today if all is ok. This is all a long process that means things can improve or get worse. Right now one step forward to us means nothing happens...which is positive in our world! We are still not out of the woods and appreciate all the thoughts and prayers!-Shane
