Once again we got a picture of Faith "untubed" when they were changing her mask. Her nares are stretched out because of the prongs from the CPAP tubes.
Faith gave us a little scare this afternoon. Her heart rate and oxygen saturation levels plummeted. She was choking on her own spit. Fortunately the respiratory therapist was close by and quickly suctioned her. Because she was on the vent she has a lot of secretions. Her airways are very swollen, thus she has a lot of "junk" in there. This is evident when Faith breathes very heavy (you can hear her struggle to breathe like someone running up a mountain). Please pray that the swelling will go down. We are pretty worried now- but know deep down that God has great plans for this girl. She is truly teaching us to have ultimate Faith!
