Taylor is doing better. Her lungs have improved and she has been eating well.
The doctors want to keep our girl in the ICU another week. They are going to support her heart a little longer through IV medication, giving it just a bit more time. They can't explain what happened this past week after she was doing so well, except that there were a lot of factors that could have come into play.
It does most-likely look like the mitral valve will need to be replaced down the road. In the meantime, the goal would be to get her to grow as big as possible. Time and healing would only be able to tell.
Taylor does still look tired and weak as well as a lot thinner. Hopefully as she continues to eat and feel better, she will perk up and get stronger. We need to work on getting her chubby rolls back!
