I got the pulsatin' rhythmical remedy

Tandra's vitals are looking good. This morning they adjusted the ventilator and her breathing rate dropped from the 40s (way too high) to between 15 and 20, almost normal. The machine is helping her make sure that at least 10 breaths per minute are deep enough - some of the breaths she does on her own aren't deep enough. The doctors are slowly finding the way to get her off the vent though.

She has a bit of a fever and the nurses have to periodically suck a bunch of gunk out of her lungs. They took a culture to see what it is - no results yet.

I didn't get enough sleep last night so I called my dad to relieve me this morning and I went home for some sleep. While I was gone, the pulmonologist visited and talked to my dad. We don't have all the lab results back yet but he said they saw some things different than they expected. He wouldn't elaborate or speculate though without full results. He did say though that he was "not encouraged." That's scary.
