The last week or so Little Dorrit has had unexplainable pleural effusions. When she had her lymphangiogram, for some reason, the dye that was injected in her that was supposed to move through her lymphatic system and reveal leaks, etc. never actually made it to her lungs. It seemed to get stuck below her chest area. This indicated a problem or even a malformation of her lymphatic system which is why she had an MRI of her chest and abdomen yesterday. According to a nurse practitioner we spoke with today, the results of yesterday's MRI did not show any abnormalities or clots in Little Dorrit's lymphatic system. Mystery or miracle?
Little Dorrit is slowly beginning her feeds again of the special Enfaport formula and she is still slowly bring weaned from her tidal volume pressure on her ventilator. Even though I know Little Dorrit is still very sick and that she may continue to encounter even more challenges to her recovery, I'd like to think that small miracles are happening for her and that any mysteries or mistakes will be solved and resolved.
