Update 03/06/13: All of Paisley's chest drains have been removed and incisions are healing well. She has been placed on a NAVA ventilator which detects diaphragmatic muscular excitation and assists her respirations when needed, opposed to the traditional ventilator that sets a fixed rate of respirations. This new ventilator allows her to strengthen her muscles and lungs so that extubation will be easier on her. As much as we miss the sound of her voice/cry, we must remind ourselves to be patient. We are holding up ok and find comfort in knowing that this is all part of God's plan in our lives.

Update 03/04/13: Our Paisley remains to be just as feisty as she was before all of this began. Every opportunity she gets to grab IV lines or her breathing tube, she goes for it! They are removing her final chest tube today and are still weaning her off the ventilator, so hopefully tomorrow they will extubate her and we will get to hear her voice again.

On Valentine's Day, Mommy Charity and Daddy Rick took Paisley in for her 4 month check-up. She had been wheezing on and off since she was born, and every time they addressed the doctor about it before, she chalked it up to one thing or another, not really taking it seriously. 

The Arnold Family checked into LLUMC on 2/15/13 and were told on 2/21/2013 that Paisley has an enlarged heart due to not having a left coronary artery. There is no operation to fix this and she will need a heart transplant. They have a very long road ahead of them and need all the prayers and support they can get! We are asking for you donations (of any amount..even $1 helps!) to offset any costs forced upon the Arnold Family at this distressful time.
