update #2

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to send out an update on everything. Julia had a very rough night last night with a bout with high blood pressure. She has been on magnesium since 10:00 yesterday and will get off of it at 10:00 am today. Magnesium's ultimate purpose is to keep seizures from happening. The side affects for Julia have been feeling nausea, double vision, and she has been extrememly hot. Last night we slep with the AC set on 65 and she was burning up all night long. She said it was the worst she has ever felt in her life.

Now on to the good news. Once she gets off the magnesium at 10:00, the doctor is going to get her up and moving. He is going to allow her to go see Perron for the first time at the NICU. This will hopefully be the start of her feeling better and on the road to recovery.

Now onto the person we thought would have the most trouble, but has pleasently surprised us all. Perron made it through his first day and night not needing oxygen. He has been breathing room air since birth. Both of my visits yesterday, he was very active and do well all on his own. His only issue is that he is still breathing a little hard. The NICU wants his breathing to be under 60 and his has been between 62 - 68, so he is close.

I will try to post some pictures on Julia's blog this afternoon.

Please continue to pray for Julia and Perron.
