Update.

Unfortunately they weren't able to get Rebecca's breathing stabilized yesterday so they had to put her on a ventilator. The doctor said they don't like to do that because once you put a T18 baby they never come off. This was not good to hear but I do know, thanks to a T18 Mom's Facebook page that I joined, that this isn't always the case.

Because they put her on the vent and we're having trouble getting a tube in one of her veins (they were finally successful but it was hard because things aren't where they should be due to her extra chromosomes) they did not do the EA surgery.  And then the doctor said she was too small so we needed to wait anyway.

I am waiting on a pass from my doctor and as soon as I get that my parents are going to take me to see her. I will have to come back here tonight but will hopefully be discharged tomorrow.

So at this point we are still praying for a miracle.

I hope you are with her right now. How frustrating that Rebecca had to be transferred and they couldn't even do the surgery. Praying for your recovery too.

Beth, just take the days minute by minute and the diagnoses and new doctor recommendations as they come. Praying you recover quickly and are with her very soon. I know that separation must be incredibly difficult. Hugs to you.
