Waiting 'til morning

Well, it doesn't look like there will be any more information tonight. Janie Beth is stable. She is on a ventilator. She is processing CO2 at a 50-60%, which really doesn't mean anything according to Joey. All indications right now is that Janie Beth does have the fatal form of dwarfism after all. The pediatric radiologist is not here tonight, so the x-rays won't get a conclusion final reading until morning. The neonatal doctor says from his perspective with his training and experience Janie Beth's chest, spine, and thigh bones are indicative of the fatal form on dwarfism. Joey has encouraged everyone to say good-bye to Michelle and go home to get some sleep. They really are not expecting anything more to happen tonight. In the event that Janie Beth does take a turn for the worst tonight (which since she is on the ventilator is not expected), the orders are to not resuscitate. After I say good-bye to Michelle, I will give one more update and then unless something changes I will say good night until morning.
