Update Update -- Good Night

We are still fighting a battle with the oxygen.  While hospital oxygen systems can pump out 20 litres per whatever, home oxygen supplies can only deliver 10 litres and are extremely unreliable above 5 or 6.  Diannw has been doing well on 4 or 5 during the day and 6 at night.  This evening her oxygen saturation  level (OSL) dropped into the low 70s and we had to increase the input to 6.  Now she is  breathing normallly and getting plenty of oxygen but i will need to keep checking through the night.

Her birthdaty came and went, like most days, quietly and uneventfully with gifts of fruit and candy from younger daughter and a visit from older daughter.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
