Goods and bads

Another rough day.   She stopped drinking her new formula.   She drank the new low fat formula great for 36 hours probably.   She was getting between 2.5 - 3.5 oz every 3 hours.   Today at 11:30 she took her last 3 oz bottle.   They also started to wean her sedative,  dex.  

She also hates her nasal cannula and is always going at it.   Her strategy is to rub her eyes then move her hand down until she pulls it out of her nose.   Just a few minutes ago they finally took it out.

She's now getting a full load of iv fluids.   She still won't eat probably because they won't let her get hungry or dehydrated.   She isn't sleeping anywhere near as much as she used too.   Tonight she's only slept 4.5 hours and only a few hours during the day.   She's way over tired.   I'm tired of seeing those blue eyes.

In a few hours I'll be dropping Melanie off at the airport and tomorrow I'll pick up my mom from the airport.   I think I'll be pretty tired from olivia's current sleep schedule.  

Good news is her chest drain is draining only a small amount now so maybe only another day or two with it.   It also means our chylothorax issues might be half way solved.   No more leakage but she still bought herself probably 6 - 8 weeks of her low fat formula.   Maybe tomorrow will be better.
