Gwen's chest is now closed. The operation went smoothly.
Her heart is beating faster than the pacemaker, which is good news because it means it's finding it's own rhythm.
Her white blood cell count is up, and the bone marrow sample they got yesterday showed lots of Neutrophils. They think that perhaps Laura had developed antibodies that were killing Gwen's Neutrophils, and that since she was on meds to stop the antibodies that shouldn't be a problem.
The are taking her off of the drugs that have her paralyzed. So we should see her moving around tonight. They are also weaning her off of the ventilator slowly. Once her central lines are out we will get to hold her again.
Becca and Lil are coming this afternoon and Lil will get to see Gwen for only the second time. Hopefully Lil won't be too concerned about all the wires and tubes.
