Charlotte's lactic acid level went all the way up to 9.9 for the noon tests but then dropped just slightly to 9.1 on the 1pm tests. They are still trying to figure out why this is happening. They are looking at xrays, ultrasounds, and echos of her liver, kidneys, and heart and will hopefully have an answer soon. In the mean time she seemed to have responded slightly to the last adjustment to her medicine so they have upped a couple of the meds and hopefully the 2pm labs will show an additional improvement.
A few days ago one of the nurses told us that you could typically tell how things were going by the number of people who are in the room. We have had a lot of visitors the past few hours. Please pray for Charlotte.
