We had a good night’s sleep, and Laura seems to have done well through the night. In fact, yesterday was such a good day, we and the medical team were all expecting to see some more strides forward today. But we had a setback this morning.
At 8:30, little Laura stopped breathing and went stiff. She appears to have had some kind of seizure. The doctors jumped in and got things stabilized quickly, and re-inserted a breathing tube. In other words, Laura is back on a ventilator again. And while she is not fully sedated, she is back on a bunch of meds to help her settle while the air clears. The EEG team was just in to get some brainwave data, and they are scheduling a CT scan this morning. We’re still not sure what caused the seizure, or what impact it may or may not have had. So, we’ve got some new questions to get answered.
We are so thankful for the genuine care of the doctors and nurses here in Riley ICU. They have been very sensitive, very quick to explain things to us, and very competent. But we’d invite your prayers for them as they endeavor to find out what triggered this morning’s event.
We will keep you posted. Thanks.
