Yesterday morning I thought I may have seen my daughter for the last time. This morning Dr. Mendeloff is talking about when he wants to try and close her chest.
Charlotte had a terrific night and the doctors and nurses can't believe how quickly she has turned things around. Her lactates have gone down steadily through the night and are at their lowest point since I started hearing about them. She has come off of almost all of the medicine that they were using to help her heart beat strongly and she should be totally off of it soon. They are even talking about starting to feed her milk today. There is still a long way to go but we are blown away by the progress she has made in the past 24 hours.
Yesterday morning when we heard Dr. Mendeloff say "I've never had to do this before" it was one of the scariest things I could imagine, but now he can say "I've done this before, and it went very well."
