Huge Dottie News!

Dottie came off the respirator today! Yay! They also took out her *picc line, which is also some great progress. 
Dottie's currently being switched every 6 or so hours between a cpap mask and nose cannula

Here's her picture from today. 

This was very unexpected but super great news for her!

We are still waiting for her surfactant deficiency genetic test results to come back hopefully on Friday, October 24th. 

The genetic test results should tell us all the information we need to progress on her treatment. 

Thanks to everyone for keeping poor little family in your thoughts, we greatly appreciate it. 


  1. *A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC or PIC line) is a form of intravenous access that can be used for a prolonged period of time (e.g. for long chemotherapy regimens, extended antibiotic therapy, or total parenteral nutrition).
