POOR RIGHT HEART FUNCTION!

So sorry that we haven't updated for a few days. Things have been pretty busy with Christmas on it's way. Kaidence has been sweating a lot the past few days and I felt that something was not right so they did an echo and found that her right heart isn't pumping well at all. The Berlin Heart is only helping with the left side because in the past her right heart was able to keep up. They are placing her back on IV medication to help improve the function. If that does not work they will look at once again replacing the pump but this time going with a bigger pump. The pump now holds 10cc of blood and I think the next size may hold 20cc (not positive though). I think that the medication will do the trick. We should know more in the next few days. I just don't want to place another Berlin Heart for her right side.

We are hoping that all is well with everyone and that you all know how much we appreciate your love and thank you for all of your generosity. We are so blessed.

We keep praying for Kaidence and your family. I hope the medicines make a difference and that the pager goes off soon!
