A small improvement

A small improvement

This morning the ICU consultant was 95% sure that Leah would need to go on a ventilator but said that he would monitor her condition for another hour.
However Leah’s condition has stabilised again thankfully.
Her oxygen levels and breathing have improved a little.
This has enabled them to swap her cpap face mask for nasal prongs for part of the time.
This is a little more comfortable for Leah & enables her to take sips of fluid and to occasionally speak some single words.
The effort of breathing continues to use up most of her energy though.
Any improvements no matter how small are very encouraging.
