Kirby has had a good week since the last update. They decided to partially close her chest yesterday to see how she responded. Her vitals remained stable and she had a good night. She is definitely proving to be a fighter! They are thinking they may try to close her chest completely this weekend or early this coming week. We have a long way to go but we are making progress. Next steps: ventilator tube out, chest tube out, umbilical lines out, learn to feed/eat, etc. Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers.
