Lucy became short of breath at some point and the nurse gave her oxygen to help her out. The doctors came in this morning to ultrasound the babies and removed the mask to talk to Lucy. Her oxygen levels began to drop at a rate that alarmed the docs and led them to believe that the shortness of breath was more than anxiety and possibly a blood clot in her lungs. After injecting dye and a CT scan, the doctors confirmed that is was NOT a blood clot. Thank goodness!
Also each baby scored and 8 out of 8 on some scale the doctors use to access their health!
The shortness of breath is being caused by fluid on her lungs as a side effect of the magnesium. They have given her a lasiks (sp?), a diuretic and it will take care of it!
We are so happy to be announcing good news. This morning has been very scary and we are so thankful for all your thoughts and prayers!
