Friday 4/8

Today, Lumin was weaned off the 840 ventilator. Now she is breathing with nose prongs and oxygen support only. They also removed her umbilical venus line. She is taking breast milk by feeding tube, and digesting slowly. She remains on three anticonvulsant medications, IV fluids, and antibiotics.

The best way to explain what is happening is to tell you that Lumin has a moderate to severe case called Hypoxic-Ischaemic Encephalopathy. Here is a website about it.

Also, many of you have asked if you can donate money to help Lumin. If you want to help, you can make a deposit to an Ent account we set up for that purpose. It's account number 555442, and it's under dad's name rather than hers. If you don't want to go to Ent, you can use our Paypal account instead. Just click the button below. Thank you SO MUCH. We feel blessed to have so much support from friends and family.
