Back in the ICU
Juliana is back in the hospital. This is the sickest I have seen her in a very long time. I never thought that I would hear someone say to me that she might not make it again but here we are. She has an infection from what we can tell thus far. The infection is causing her other organs to fail. She is intubated again and back on the high frequency oscillator with nitric oxide. It is set to very high settings and if this doesn't work we may end up going on ECMO (heart lung machine). Everytime she wakes up her sats drop and her heart stops so they are keeping her sedated and paralyzed. She doesn't look god at all. I really wish I had something good to say but i don't. I will try to post updates on her condition as much as possible. Please pray for my Juliana. She had come so far to lose her now.
Juliana Maria was born on July 12, 2008. She is a micro preemie born at 1lb 2oz. 11-1/2 in 23 weeks and 4 days gestational age.
