Ella had a challenging morning. She is currently on the ventilator to help her breathe. She is not taking deep enough breaths without it, and she is having a lot of alarms going off. The doctor also noticed some swelling around her neck area. He also ordered for the nurse to start her on an antibiotic, because her body is acting like it has an infection and they want to catch it before it becomes a problem.
Her sugars are high and they have reduced the amount of sugar that is going into her fluids. Her sugars will continue to be checked regularly throughout the day. Labs are ordered for the morning to check her gases to see if there is a concern for infection.
Her afternoon is going better with no alarms going off since we were there. She is resting comfortably. Good news for now!
