Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


Better and better

Ash is having her best day yet. She's up out of bed. She can sit up on her own. Her swelling is going down except for her eyes. She is communicating her wants to her daddy and being very vocal when not receiving them. Her feeds are up to 25ccs an hour and she's tolerating.

This mornings lab work showed huge improvements. Her bun finally hit the normal range. It's the high end but it's normal. Creatanine is coming down too. We r now in a balancing game with her electrolyte losses. The goal on feeds is 85. Once we r there as long as her numbers stay stable we should be headed home. I really think it may happen this week.

She's been through so much this week. I'm just grateful to see the light at the end of this tunnel. We want to bring her home where she belongs.

No word on pathology yet but her turn around seems promising to us. We remain hopeful that her bowel is safe.
