Weeeeeell......she has not received the steroids yet. She has a possible urinary tract infection. The doctors want to give her antibiotics for a few days before administering the steroid shots. This might be a blessing in disguise because it will give her a few days to grow and mature. If she doesn't have an infection they will begin with a low dose. Today they noticed that her airways were very swollen, which could be contributing to the breathing problem. The steroids will help the inflammation, but it is a catch 22 as they are debating if the risks associated with this drug outweigh the benefits.
No more new to report- she is still holding steady at 2.2 pounds. Thanks for your continued support and encouragement!
