I just learned that Ava's left lung has quadrupled in size from Tuesday. This is HUGE and shows awesome progress. What a fighter this sweet little one is. All of your prayers are helping this family. I know they are so thankful. Here is Jennifer's latest email below.
The 6:00 PM brain sonogram showed very little growth which Dr Thomas said could be expected since we did not start the drug to slow down the bleeding until 2:00 PM. He was relieved and so were we. Another sono will be done at 6:00 AM. If it shows no progression of bleeding then that should open a window of opportunity for surgery. Surgery could be done as early as tomorrow mid-morning. Ava will ultimately decide when it's time. She's resting very peacefully now and has continued to amaze us with her will to fight these battles. Six days old and she's preparing for her 2nd surgery. No one will ever have to remind me we have a miracle child. And I don't know how we will ever thank all the people who have touched our lives with love, support and prayer.
I will send another update as soon as possible.
