and praying for good results! Well, let me first explain that we are going to the cath lab for a new PICC line. Yup, a new one. Since one of the lines of the PICC started to leak, I guess standard procedure is to take blood cultures. Well, the cultures came back with one positive and now we have two negatives since they started her on antibiotics. So, tomorrow is the day and the new PICC will be in her left arm instead of in her leg. Hmmmmmm...what to have her wear now will be a challenge. :-) Ok, now I was given all of this cath lab information this afternoon and there was also mention of getting actually pressures for the Hemi-fontan. Confused yet? ha ha Well, I was too at first but apparently after firmly saying "no" about the surgery, it must have been on the minds of the important decision makers since we will be in the cath lab anyway. I think they may want to see for sure since Lindsay is so unpredictable with what she will do next. Let's pray that her pressures are definitely below 10 or 12, then she may be a candidate. Consensus says that her pressures will be higher than that but we will find out tomorrow afternoon. She will be first case in the lab and that will be at 8am. Please pray for low pressures and that we can have the hemi as an option and then we can wait for her perfect heart at home!!!!!!! Not getting my hopes up, but miracles happen and it never hurt anything to ask.
On a lighter note, Lindsay had more visitors this afternoon. Aunt Marva, Aunt Carole, and Uncle Robb came to see the princess. She was so happy and playful for them. Needless to say she put smiles on their faces to last them until the next time that they see her. After our great visit, they took me out for a very yummy dinner, including a glass of wine for myself, and now I am ready for bed! JR will be here bright and early in the morning to sit with me while Lindsay is in the lab. This just makes us nervous because her previous visits have not been very good and she comes back on oxygen. Praying that she withstands everything tomorrow and that she will be back to her old self in no time. Thanks for the continuous flood of prayers for the princess.
