7:08 am - one of the nurses just told me that Kits procedure is Dr. Austin's keynote procedure. It's his favorite and he is really fast. What luck.
7:28 am - Rounds were REALLY good. Since everything is going so well they are basically starting to diminish and remove all of the artificial supports to start to give her body the chance to take over again.
9:10 am - the nurse taking care of kit right now just told us that once kit comes off the epinephrine and dopamine (I think) that we can start holding her again which could be as soon as this afternoon.
12:16 pm - just got a good call from the nurse staying with kit. They are continuing to wean her off of the various medications. But more importantly, she has opened her eyes a few times and was using one of her arms to try and swat the nurse away while she repositioned her breathing tube. She's a fighter.
7:13 pm - Her blood pressure continues to improve and they are weaning her off of the epinephrine. They may have already done so by now. My mom and dad brought Dottie to Louisville to spend the night so they got to see Kit as well. Dottie didn't however. While I was away with Dottie and my parents, Beth gave Kit a "bath" of sorts which involved wiping her down with antibacterial wipes, and after she dried for 15 mins, putting on lotion. Beth also got to wash and comb Kit's luxurious locks, which we think may be curly.
