There is not much to report at the moment.
As of noon the ventilator was set on its
lowest setting and either later today or
Sunday the idea is to see if she can go it
alone. If not it will be restarted and
they wait some more.
As I understand this, when her pulmonary
function deteriorated last Saturday there
was some damage to organs which now have
to heal, which is occurring slowly.
As her sedation has been reduced a bit
she has responded to those about her,
but any neurological issues are yet to be
determined. First the ventilator has to go.
So no news there.
Liver enzymes levels, which in her case
seem to be relevant*, are continuing to
come down – suggesting in-progress healing.
I did not get numbers today but a couple of
days ago they were reduced by 30% from the
day before. (*may not be in some other
sorts of liver issues)
On the home front I had to replace the
heater in the horse trough (expecting very
cold for a few days here). And I am
working with the youngest of the dogs
trying to get her to go in and out via
a ‘doggy’ window. The two oldest are
fine with this from previous experience
but this one thinks I’m nuts for asking.
