Update on Miranda

She opened her eyes Saturday.  Just for a little while before the docs sedated her again.  But, oh what a treat.

They had placed her on dialysis a couple of days ago to help her shed excess fluid she was retaining and help her kidneys filter out all the chemicals they've had to handle.  Docs were hopeful her blood pressure would go down and her lungs would hold air on their own.  Within hours her fluid levels dropped and the next day they took the ventilator off which had kept her lungs inflated.  The dialysis also has been removed.  She's still on the IKMO (heart-lung) machine which they continue to try to ween her from. 

Her blood pressure is still high though, and she seems to be steadying just a little, but she's still considered non-stabilized yet.  I could go on and on about her, but I don't want to bore you.  Just thought you might like to see this wonderful picture of our tiny little girl.  Peeking through the window to her little soul.

We arrived back home Sunday to check on the kitties and take care of business to find that we're having a lovely Indian Summer this week in Ohio, and the leaves are just perfect.  Hope you are having a wonderful week, as well.

Thank you for all your warm wishes and continuing prayers for Miranda and her family.  I'm so touched beyond belief, and her parents truly appreciated everything you've done, as well.  God bless you all.


  1. This is very encouraging news, Karen, I'm still holding her up in prayer - what a darling sweet little girl!!!

  2. Just catching up on my blog reading and came across this post. I'm so glad she is improving! I will keep Miranda (and you all!) in my prayers!
