Post-op Day 1

Post-op Day 1

Emma had s fairly uneventful night.  She required some fluid and blood to maintain pressures, but rested well and all things considered did very well.

They are taking her off of the paralytic  in hopes of taking the breathing tube out tomorrow.  Her process of waking up is not going to be easy or fun.  We will be watching her blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels etc. very closely to make sure her repair is holding up well once she is no longer sedated.  

If I don't t keep you as updated...please bear with me.  I am not sure if it is the lack of sleep or stress, but I am not feeling very well and am headed to the hotel to try to sleep off my headache and stomachache.   

Prayer Requests:

1. That Emma tolerates coming off the paralytic.

2. Emma's blood pressure stays normal, heart rhythm stays arrhythmia free, and labs looks good.

3. Emma's repair holds up nicely and pressures in her heart stay normalized.

4. That Emma will extubate successfully.

Again we thank you for the prayers. God is good! All the time! God is good!
