1 Step Forward 2 Steps Back

That pretty much sums it up... Olivia will make great progress, and then she will go backwards. It is so frustrating, she is back on oxygen, back in the isolet, but the warmer is not on, so she keeping her own temp. She is still eating really well. But, the doctors are stumped as to why she cannot keep her O2 levels up when she is asleep. When she is awake she is fine, but when she gets into a deep sleep her numbers drop again. They are going to give her a few more days, and then they will start running more tests to see if it is something more obscure. Please pray for her that she has a good few days, and that this is nothing more than lung immaturity and not something more serious. Every test they have run so far has been negative, and she has had a lot of them! I don't want to see my baby poked and prodded anymore!

I am so sorry! How frustrating! Thanks for all the updates! We always have her in our prayers. Let me know if there is anything I can do. Like if you need me to come and stay with Ansley or make some meals, whatever you need!!

Oh- Taylor that post made me cry as I am sure you have lots seeing your little Olivia like this. I am so sorry and will continue to pray fro her. I am so happy you have so much family near by. I need your number to call you when I get in town this week! I will be staying in Orem and would love to visit!

I am so sorry you guys are going through this. I really hope the next two days are good for Olivia. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to go through an experience like this and not be able to fix it. We are praying here in the freezing (in the 20's!) Sunshine State!!
