CPK levels

We are still in PICU. Hannah's CPK levels keep coming back more elevated than the time before. This shows stress on the heart and they will not move her to the floor until those levels go down. As long as they are increasing she needs to be monitored closely. That's the bad news. The good news is that Hannah is off vent, oxygen, cath, and g-tube. She is awake and talking some. Still pretty groggy. We do not know how bad her muscles have taken a hit yet. We know they did because the CPK is muscle related and the tests they did to measure any muscle breakdown showed some. They put her on meds to keep the breakdown from continuing so hopefully they were able to intervene in time. Her fever tried to return earlier but it went back down on it's own before it got too high. That's about all the news I have so far. We have a really good nurse tonight that has Hannah all fixed up for the night. She even helped me comb through the disaster the EEG left in her hair. She's awesome.
