1 step forward 2 steps back

The ups and downs of having a very sick baby in the hospital can be very challenging. Over the last 4 to 5 days we have had a difficult time getting Ryan to rid herself of excess fluid. Along with the swelling, her tummy has been very distended and tight. This lead infectious disease to start antibiotics as a precaution in case she had developed an infection. As of today they don't think she has an infection and they plan on taking her off of the antibiotics tomorrow. She was also taken off of breast milk and put on infoport. Infoport is a manufactured nutritional supplement. The reason for the switch is because the fat in the breast milk can cause her problems with her thoracic duct. Ryan seems to be doing better today but she is still pretty swollen. We hope to get her swelling down soon so that we can start to make progress in other areas. Thanks for the prayers, Jared
