no surprise

The soap opera continues for Elie Mak. After a few severe apnea episodes, she was rushed down to the 2nd floor today (critical care) with a suspected infection. When we left her bed at 9:30pm, her blood tests and urinalysis had returned negative. They will repeat all tests in twelve hours, so we should have more information in the morning.

As if that wasn't enough, Owen failed his car seat test today. He made it 45 minutes, and then dropped his heart rate. This was his first time sitting in a car seat, and he had a stressful eye exam today, so we weren't totally surprised. We've been staples in the NICU for three months now; nothing surprises us anymore.

Thankfully, there is eventually a flipside to all the downer surprises...like when they show up with some flowers from the yard or sneak up behind you with a hug. So - maybe you'll start getting some of THOSE surprises soon.
