Surgery Update 5

We just spoke to Dr. Baird and everything went well.  He did the bidirectional Glenn, repaired her tricuspid valve, and took the stent out of the LPA.  Her function was already slightly improved and all her numbers look good.  She did have some excess bleeding post op, but Dr. Baird stayed in the OR until it had stopped.  Overall, he was pleased with the procedure.  Now we wait and see how the right ventricle recoups with less volume overload.  

We hope to see her in about an hour or so.  They will keep her sedated and incubated tonight to let her body heal.

Please continue to pray for our sweet girl as the next few days will be hard for her.  Post Glenn tends to bring severe headaches.  

Pray that her heart function will return to normal and her body will accept this new repair.

Pray for the doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapists caring for Emma.

Pray for a smooth evening without much bleeding, pain, rhythm or blood pressure issues.

God is good!  All the time! God is good!
