Heart Cath in the Morning

Oh, I am once again ready for bed. So I will keep this short and sweet. Today Kaidence had 2 different attempts to do dialysis on her blood. Both attempts failed because her lines aren't working well. Because these lines go into her heart and are so invasive to redo (they are not IV's) cardiology has come up with a new plan. Its not what they ideally wanted, but they hate to put her through more procedures just to get working lines. Kaidence has only had 3 of the 5 dialysis treatments.

Here is where we once again hope you will pray for Kaidence. Tomorrow morning at 7 am Kaidence will go in for another heart biopsy. With no access for the dialysis we are hoping that the 3 treatments she did get have gotten rid of the antibodies. If not, she will under go more procedures to place new lines. These lines are risky because they can carry a great risk of infection, so the sooner you can get them out....the better. The docs are really happy with how well K is looking. Her labs look great and so they are hoping that things could possibly work out for tomorrow. If that is the case, she would likely be coming home in the next few days. If not, we will just cross that bridge then.

That's today's news. Hoping that the cath goes well ( after her episode, I am pretty nervous for the morning) and that their are NO MORE NAUGHTY ANTIBODIES!!!!
