Elaina had a rough night, so they are not planning on closing her chest today. She is still having a tough time getting the right amount of oxygen. Her levels should be going up, but they are going down. The doctors are going to send her to Cath Lab today to see if they can re-wire the subclavian central line that was put in the day before surgery. Then they are going to inject some dye into the line to see if they can figure out what is going on with her pulmonary arteries, why they aren't giving her adequate blood flow. What they do next is undetermined. They might try to balloon something open if it's critical, or they might send her back to surgery tomorrow to see if one of her pulmonary arteries can be re-constructed or maybe put in an additional shunt. So, here we go back on our scary roller coaster. She is such a fighter, she's trying so hard to win this battle. What a little Heart Hero!
I'll update more as I get more information.
