Anyway, this morning I talked to her nurse and she said that her breathing has slowly calmed from 120 to average around 70-80 and her oxygen has stayed down in the 30s. She even tried her oxygen down at around 21 last night which is the lowest setting it has ever been on and is the same as room air. Finally, her chest X-ray looks much better then when she first arrived and her lungs are sounding clear with the exception of one very small "diminished" area on her upper right side.
Now, I will say that this particular NICU nurse also gave us two rules about the NICU. The first was, never trust a NICU baby, meaning they can get worse just as fast as they got better. The second was don't panic unless you see her panicking (which thankfully has not happened).
Thank you all for your prayers. We rest in the fact that our Father has perfect timing and that he is in control of all things, including little baby lungs and platelets that he knit together inside of me.
