Things are looking up!
So the last couple of days have been a roller coaster. Two nights ago Avery stopped breathing and they had to shake her up a little bit to get her to breathe again. I was sure this was a major set back. To my surprise, things have continued to move forward. All tests came back negative for any possible infection. They pulled her feeding tube and she is taking all feeds by mouth. Her shunt is working fine. They finished the sleep study today and found that the problem has to do with immature lungs. What this means is Avery will go home with oxygen. They are looking to send her home at the end of the week or early next. Jeremy and I are getting CPR certified tomorrow, which is the start of the discharge process. Can't thank you all enough for your prayers, as you can see nothing is impossible.
