Day 4

Another amazing day for ‘no news is great news’! Well, no big news anyway.

Ellie has made a few great steps today. She is already off her blue light so we probably only have to worry about Hannah sun-baking when she is older. She did her first poo which is great (Deb said it was huge). Her breathing has also improved, almost back to where it was, and they will look at taking out her off the ventilator later in the week. And best news is that the blood tests came back and there is no infection! She is back off her antibiotics now.

Both girls are having their fluids increased and everything is looking really positive today. They will have their next (and hopefully final) brain scan on Thursday. After this they are past the big danger of bleeding in the brain which is during the first week.
