Juliana has stayed in about the same condition today. She is still chemically paralyzed and still sedated. They have removed a couple tubes, added a couple of medicines, and changed some medicines out for different ones. She is on morphine now for pain management. She did not react to having her nose suctioned or her gums brushed (yesterday - even though she had no signs of consciousness, her heart rate and blood pressure would spike when getting suctioned or brushed - she hates these things).
It is hard to see our little one covered in so many tubes and not be able to hold her or squeeze her. It is hard to call her name and she not answer, to touch her face or hair and feel no response. Only the steady rhythm of her chest from the ventilator and the steady pulsing of all the numbers on the screen show her to be alive.
We lose track of time in this place. What day is it? Time passes slowly. In many ways it feels like "Groundhog Day" again.
