Today we came into her room with not exceptional news but at least a plan of attack. The doctors did an echo this morning and found that she has increased pulmonary pressure and is creating what they call pop offs. This means that because of the increase in pressure from the hemi-fontan procedure, extra blood is traveling into veins that go directly to the heart instead of to the lungs. The good news is that they have a solution, hopefully, and Lindsay is starting to get some pedialite to get something in her belly to tolerate her Viagra. Yes, that's right, Viagra! This will help the pulmonary volume and the hope is that this improves her pressure and that we can get closer to removing her vent. It will be a few days before we know the effect of the Viagra so we are assuming not much will change until then. Keep praying for our princess. She really needs them now! Very fragile indeed.
Please add our son, Cruz, to your prayer list. He is having a cat scan done at 3pm this afternoon to take a closer look at his very inflamed neck due to the mono that he has. Lord help us! The testing has begun again I think. Have I mentioned that I'm loosing my hair?!!! Wonder why.....
More updates tonight~
