ER- UPDATE!

Miss K was admitted to the 3rd floor tonight. They will keep an eye on things. She seems to be improving, although she still has fevers. They have a couple of theories as to what may have happened. They think that she may have had a seizure (I really don't think that this was the case) because of low O2 saturation's. The low sats could be caused most likely because of a combination of all of the following: Swelling from surgery, paralyzed vocal chord, cough, Spasms of the airway and some sort of viral infection that they have seen going around lately. We cannot check a respiratory panel because that would require suctioning which would be much too dangerous right now with the risk of bleeding. They think that because of her compromised immune system theses things all working against her may have set off this episode. It all happened so quickly. It was not like the choking episode back in March, it was completely different.

We will stay tonight and hopefully go home in the morning. We won't be coming around to visit any of our heart buddies while we are here because we would like to keep all of you healthy just in case she really does have something. So we hope that everyone is doing well and we will update tomorrow. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Oh my! There is always something to keep you busy. I was glad to see that the surgery was a "regular kid" surgery, but of course these kids always come with excitement. I am glad she is hanging in there. Keep up the good work.

I am so sorry for this recent episode. You never want things to be unexpected. Ellie gets strighter so bad every time she gets extubated. That's usually what keeps us there longer. Hope she gets feeling better.
