I have to admit it's getting better...

...it's getting better all the time.

Gotta love another Beatles reference!






The pictures give you a pretty good idea of how Eden is feeling. She has certainly found her smile once again, and was talking and in good spirits most of today. She was also on room air all day, satting in the low 90s most of the time. She started dipping into the 80s while she was falling asleep, so we ended up putting her oxygen back on before bed. This doesn't bode well for us going home tomorrow, but I am still hopeful based on how much better she seems to be feeling.

They want her to drink more fluids, but she is still on IV fluids. I think if we took them away, she'd drink more, and they want her to drink more before they take them away. It's a catch 22.

I certainly hope no one tries to say they want to keep her until she is eating better!!! We'll have to pack up and move in;)

glad she is feeling better. Hopefully only a day or so more in the hospital and you guys will be home.

Glad she's on the mend.

I was surprised at how alike the girls look when Eden's headband is off and she's sleeping (without her face spread out in her regular wide grin!)

Beautiful.
