Update on Sophia. *Final update*

Sophia is still with us, but is doing very poorly. She has a small pneumonia, so her oxygen requirements have gone from .75 liters per hour to 5 liters per hour. We have been keeping her sedated with Fenobarbitol and Morphine. Her O2 sats have been hanging around the low to mid 80s, and her breathing is getting very labored. 

Due to her high oxygen requirements, we've had to switch her from a nasal cannula to an oxygen mask. We were able to get her one with a penguin on it. It's pretty cute, for an oxygen mask. 

Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. I'll try to continue keeping you all updated.

Sophia has slipped into a coma. Her breathing is very slow and shallow. It's only a matter of hours now.

Sophia passed away peacefully in her sleep at 8:19 this morning. Thank you all for your prayers and condolances.

It is our job as parents to guide our children through their lives, and be there for them no matter what.

You have had a horrible wrench thrown at you, but you do what you have to as the mama, being there and guiding and standing by your child as they go through their time.

You are a strong person and a great mother.  I wish all of you peace as you travel the end of this road.
