I thought that I would update quickly while I'm hear at the RMH doing laundry and booking some travel.........Lindsay was moved out of the PCTU today around 4pm. The potassium was her issue and now has been assigned doses every 4 hours instead of every 6 hours. She is also eating orally like a champ and has FINALLY been written orders for feeds every 3 hours instead of every two, and is now eating 90 cc's instead of 60 cc's. So far so good and has been sleeping soundly. Before, she would eat every two took her 1/2 an hour to eat and then an hour and a half later, she had to start all over again. Man people, she has half of a heart! She is tuckered out! Now she is on the schedule that she was on at home so it is soooooo much better we think. She has had a smiley, happy day and the nurses were sad to see her leave the PCTU. I have a feeling we will have a lot of visitors in Moderate Care!
All for now. I will post pictures when I get back tonight.
Love, Suzie

glad she's feeling up to her old schedule and got promoted! She's making great strides!!
We absolutely want 3 bracelets. Abi, Britain and Izzy were so excited and want to send their allowance money. Abi told someone she is
"sending money to help baby Lindsay buy a new heart that works good". I love the innocent ways they view such complicated hard things!.
love to you all!
