Night 1

Night 1 of sleeping without oxygen:

"Emily, are you going to be able to do this?"

"Yeah, I think so. My belly hurts, but my breathing is okay."

Relaxed resting in bed (but awake) respiratory rate was 34, pulse 118, O2 sat 98. Looking good!

She kissed Mommy goodnight, lots of giggling with Braylon, then off to sleep.

Midnight, went in to check her, and she still looks good, but she is starting to show little signs of what she does. Respiratory rate down to 25, pulse 98, and O2 sat is 94-96. Still pretty good. Thing is, everytime the sat drops to 94 (about 3 times per minute), she jerks her hands and legs (a lot like a baby with the startling reflex) which increases her pulse to the 110 range and increases the sat to 96.

Otherwise, she looks good. Not sure how well she is resting with all this jerking, but she looks good. Fingers crossed!
