An add on from yesterday, I forgot to mention Ellie received the trifecta of blood products – plasma, platelets and whole blood – thank you to everyone who has donated. If we want to provide blood products for people other than Ellie don’t forget to keep donating!
In Ellie terms it was a reasonably quiet day today. She had blood taken and a fancy vascular ultrasound – her clot is still there and her other neck vessels are clear. Her new line is working well. Next plan is to ween her morphine a little and try to get her off the ventilator over the next few days.
Tomorrow is Ellie’s 100 day birthday in NICU, it will be a little bitter sweet seeing her still on a ventilator.
I will try to get photos tomorrow – having a newborn in my care is surprisingly taking away from my photography time.
