Getting settled in

We tried weaning Caroline completely off the oxygen today with no luck.  She really hates the canula, but her sats sit about mid 60's when she's not on it.  Maybe she needs just a little more time.  Of course, she is on diuretics to pull the excess fluid off her lungs.  The problem with that is she's not eating enough to keep her electrolites up.  After all this time, we're playing feeding games again.  Her pain seems to be controlled by tylenol, but we have ready access to narcotics if she needs them.  
Mama is extra sleepy, and the nurse tonight needs to be watched.  I'll post more tomorrow when my brain is functioning a little better.
