Julia update

Grammie Jen Reports:

My dear one, today was another day of roller coasters. We were very happy to hear that her stats were better and her heart was getting stronger. She was using a less toxic amount of oxygen and of course she got approved for therapy and help from the Regional Center, accepted for social security, and Carrie was accepted back into the family house. All good things. The first EEG [measuring brain activity] was good but the 2nd one was very bad. They will do another one but odds are 70% not hopeful. I personally am going for the 30% group of it being OK. [She is getting a medication that can cause the type of results that she got, so they will take her off the medication and repeat the test.] We shall see. It is so hard to see her little body going through this so I choose for the small 30%. Thanks and I love you all and all that you continue to do to for us all!

Love,
Grammie Jen

And a more recent update: 

They have been able to reduce the epinephrin, which is one of the more toxic drugs she is getting, the level of oxygen she is getting is now down to 50%, and her PH is in the normal range. These are all very good signs that her body is starting to recover somewhat from the trauma of the resuscitation.
