Day 348

Ellie went on to Low Flow at around 8am this morning. She absolutely hates having her face touched (fair enough after all she has been through) and it was quite a struggle to change all the tape and prepare her for the new prongs. After quite the struggle, she forgave us and seemed quite interested in what must be a very different feeling breath support.

Her saturation was excellent (as expected) and she has been monitored closely all day to keep an eye on her breathing. Her biggest hurdle will be to not tire out trying to breathe without the pressure of high flow helping her.

We should have more of an idea overnight and tomorrow, but so far so good.
