Little Update

Mia didn't make it out of ICU today. :( She is still on milrinone, which "is a vaso dilator and helps profuse her arms and legs. When they started the weaning process her hands and feet were cold. They increased her dose, and they are going to try and ween more gradually." Her mom said she is still doing great though and is amazed at how normal her heart looks on the echo. Her other medications are tapering down but until she is able to be off the milirinone she will have to remain in the ICU. Let's pray her body will tolerate and work properly off the she can be moved to the floor. The closer she is to being on the floor also brings her one step closer to being at home!
