Day 115

Ellie looked a lot better today. The diuretics went a long way to reducing the swelling, her colour looked better and she was alert and looking around when I arrived. Her pic line stopped working today and we are really grateful that it lasted longer than expected as that means she now can use the cannula that was put in today to get her through the last 4 days of Antibiotics.

The consultant on today was still not happy with her current breathing progress and lung capacity. If the diuretics have not made significant progress by tomorrow he will start her on a course of steroids (ideally it would be better if she can progress without the steroids).
