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.

Thank you. I've been following this since last year... Do you mind if I ask what state you live in? I'm thankful for the update.

I went through something kind of similar., but I can't compare.. When I was 5 months pregnant I found out that the little baby boy I was carrying was diagnosed with trisomy 18 through amniocentesis. They said I could abort. No way . I chose to carry him to term and give him a fighting chance.. Well he died inside me and I went through 31 hours of labor and deliverd him . ( no cesarean. ) it was hard.

I am in no way saying this was harder. I don't think it was . I just know what it's like to wait for this to happen... Hugs momma.
