It seems like a lot of stuff going on with the girls. So here is the update. First of all Ashlyn got an update ultrasound of her head. The ventricles had gotten bigger, but that was before they got out 4 cc's of fluid. That is a lot of fluid for her size. We would assume the ventricles had decreased after that. I'm glad they are able to get the fluid out by doing spinal taps versus us having to get a neurosurgeon involved. That could still be the case, but so far so good. The protein levels in Ashlyn's spinal fluid is very good. Protein levels are usually high with a grade 4, but not Ashlyn's. That is very encouraging. Rachel is doing better with her blood pressure. They suspect there is a little clot where her PICC line was removed that is infected. She will have to be on antibiotics for up to 6 weeks. That is ok as long as it will help her. Haley is doing good. She is basically right now just feeding and growing. Her latest head ultrasound showed an improvement with the grade 4 and the other side continues to have an unchanged grade 2. So all in all things are looking good. We continue to pray for their healthy to improve. We are grateful for the miracles they are.
