Cedie Lynn Mock's Blog

Cedie Lynn was born on 6/16/05 in Memphis, TN. She arrived 6 wks early. Cedie spent the first 11 & 1/2 months in the hospital. Although she endured many surgeries and spent 2/3 of her life in hospitals, she was a very happy, beautiful little girl who was full of love and who was loved by everyone who met her in person and online. She now watches over all of us as our own little angel.

Saturday, 4/29/06 - Another Bad Day

Cedie started the day with an O2 increase from 30% to 50%. Also, she had to take a dose of chlor. hydrate (mild sedation) to calm her down so that the vent could help her. She was breathing too fast and not using all of her lungs to move air. Her CO2 was too high and her O2 too low. Obviously we are not going to attempt any CPAP trials today.

I am going to go sit with her. I'll update later tonight. Pray that she will get over this hump quickly and that it does not esculate further.

Cedie was in her "no one touches me!" mood. She was fine as long as we left her alone. I tried holding her but she started coughing and that started a fit. She had to be bumped to 100% O2 for 10 minutes to help her get through the episode. However, within 15 minutes after being put back in her bed and put back at 50% O2, her stats were much better. She went back to being sound asleep. Her pulmonologist was not too concerned. He agreed that she was pushed too fast and 12/14 hrs seems to be here limit at this point. He ordered that she be put back on CPAP as soon as she gets to her baseline. That will not happen today but maybe tomorrow...
