Today Olivia had a good day. At least until we got there. She had a nurse who had not had her for a while. In the past when she had taken care of Olivia, she had not cried or gagged. Today she cried a fair amount and has "intermittent gag reflex" according to her chart. The doctor also said that this morning she was able to get her to do a little bit of sucking. The nurse said that she had not had any of the spells today that she had yesterday, but while we were there she had one.
The gagging and sucking are very important little steps, but we are asking God for a specific request. She needs to handle her secretions and protect her airway. This is what is causing her spells. Please pray that she will conquer this hurdle.
