Just in time for mother's day

Well, Elyza was admitted to Utah Valley Hospital on Tursday. She woke up with a high fever of 103.5, so we felt it was necessary to take her in. she was admitted for observation. They discovered that she has a lot of lose skin around her voice box. At this point, they are talking about waiting to see if she grows out of that. So, until then, they are keeping her on oxygen while she sleeps.

Elyza Is a little more active. They did an EKG to make sure her heart hadn't been affected by her breathing problems. They said that the right side was enlarged, but that it should even out over time. We are still waiting on the full report. She currently on two liters of oxygen around the clock and her CPap when she sleeps.

Life Flight and CPap

After working really hard for several hours to help Elyza breath, the nurses decided that Elyza needed to be life Flighted to Primary Children’s Medical Center. So, at three in the morning, they got her ready and loaded her. There wasn't room in the chopper for a parent, so we had to drive ourselves. She got put on a CPap machine when she arrived at the new hospital. Traffic went well and we ended being only fifteen minutes behind the helicopter. Elyza was so exhausted that when they had to start a new IV, she didn't really fuss about it. She seems to be doing better after a bit of good rest.

Patrice and I decided to go to the temple. It was a good session.

Rinal Virus

Elyza did ok today. More of her test results came back, and they are telling us that they found rinal virus, which is close to a cold virus. She is still very congested. The nurses are suctioning her out every two hours. She was a little more active today. This evening, however, she is having difficulties breathing.
