I finally got this darned computer in her room at the hospital working!!! Mom explained the situation pretty well I think. We were told tonight that we won't have a set date until Monday sometime for surgery. So, just a waiting game until Monday. Thank God it is only one more day to wait! I just want to send and special "thank you" to my Mom.........she went right over to our house with Cruz in hand and started our laundry and made us a few meals to warm up here at the hospital so we don't have to eat out everyday. Not only does it help us save money, but helps keeps the calories low!!! If it weren't for you, we would still be there doing our laundry. Thanks Mom, we love you very much!
Well, we are currently waiting for her blood transfusion to take place. They put an IV in her foot tonight, which lowered her oxygen levels even more because she got so mad. They have her on more flow and they are coming up a little. By looking at her, she looks like her normal self. It makes me wonder how long her sats were this low since we last went in to the cardiologist on the 11th. Anyway, she is happy as pie like usual and eating fine too.
We are thanking God tonight for having us do this heart cath here at U of M. We were going through the scenario if we were home. They would have done the cath, discovered that her sats were way too low, and then she would have probably taken an ambulance ride over here. We are sooo thankful that Dr. Loker had this done here when he did. God had the plan all set for us and even got us in at RMH. Yes, hotels this weekend here were $250-$300 a night! That was even my travel agent rate. Can you believe that?!! That is completely nuts! What a Michigan football game creates. By the way....how about that game,huh?!!! GO BLUE!!
Lindsay does have a leaking tricuspid valve and her shunt is narrowing but not so much that she is in trouble in the near future. Because of her awesome weight, the cardiologist and surgeon feels that she is ready for the Hemi. No other worries however except for the darned pulse ox.
She had Papa and Uncle Dan visit her today. Of course, after the game. Needless to say they sounded a little hoarse after their exciting day. It was nice to spend a little time with them tonight before they headed back to Kalamazoo.
Well, I'm exhausted and Lindsay is about ready to eat. Until tomorrow-
Love , Suzie
