Hey, all! This one's just a quick update. Samantha's doing well, and she's resting today better than she has since she got here. She's a lot happier now that she has nutrients coming through her PICC line! Before they'll even consider sending her home, Samantha needs to have only about 5 or 10 mL or less of fluid coming out of her lungs during a 24-hour period. She's an over-achiever; she has that much coming out every hour! ;-) We wish we had some prospect of going home within a few days, but are thankful that aside from the many tubes she's attached to, Samantha is just hanging out and feeling okay.
We'll keep updating!
Thanks everyone for your prayers!
