Continued Good News

We saw Tehilla for a brief moment. Dr. Erez came by. He is over all pleased with how things went and said things went even a little better than he expected.

They enlarged her pulmonary arteries on both sides very far with a patch and then did the Glenn. 

The pressures in her heart are still higher than he wants. He expects with the new circulation, her pressures will lower a bit in a few weeks. Her head is a bit swollen right now.

Because it's a whole new circulation, she will have pressure changes in her head and may be very irritable for a few days until they adjust.

They are playing it by ear, but if all goes well, they may try to extubate tonight.

We are not allowed in the PICU yet. We are impatiently waiting outside.
