On a real internet connection at the hospital outside of the NICU.
Talked to the doctor, and they are now officially pretty confident it was oxygen deprivation in the womb and during birth. Her liver enzymes were still a bit high this morning, so it is really a wait and see. The doctor said that this type of thing generally resolves itself within a few days to a week. She does have a slight edema in her brain in the from of the ventricle sacs that hold fluid are just slightly non-symmetrical. That could be what is causing the tremors, or the tremors could just still be her. So, no ct scan, no spinal tap, just wait. So pray for quick results over the next day or two, and hopefully she is home sooner rather than later. A week is a long time.
Jeannett is getting her staples out right about now, and her and Lucy are being discharged. She's going to come by here, and then head home with Lucy. We're going to try and keep somebody here with Jillian most of the days she is her. Lame that I have to say that, but it is what it is at this point.
Now for some pictures. Jeannett can give the full story later, but here are some pics (without Jeannett in them, she wants to be the judge of what she puts up on herself).
Lucy on the table.
Jill on the table.
Lucy in the nursery, she was pretty chill.
Jill in the nursery, she was much less chill.
Poor Jill in the transport getting ready to go to Sierra Vista. Jeannett did not like this part. Who wants to see their kid in that thing? Looks like an alien contraption that's going to suck her brains out or something. Don't these people think about such things? Function over form, I guess.
Jill in the hands of the NICU nurse, which thankfully are good hands.
