Natalie's liver numbers continue to improve, slowly. She is still on the vent.

Every morning she has an X-Ray to look at her lungs. Today's X-ray looked "wet."

The theory is that after closing her up, more pressure is being put on her lungs and she's not able to take deep breaths (this is not uncommon). So they are giving her a little lasix (diuretic) to help get rid of the excess fluid.

Also, this morning they stopped her feeds. She hadn't had a poopy diaper in 2 days. And her tummy was getting bigger as things "backed up."

An hour after they took her food away she gave her nurse a poopy diaper - that'll show them.

At this point we're not going forward, but we're not moving back either. It's frustrating.
