Outdoor Activities

We went to the park and blew bubbles, looked for cats and walked around enjoying the fresh air. Tehilla couldn't handle walking around, so she stayed in the stroller.

We came back to our room and were seen by some doctors and then took a bath. 

We were then visited by Tzviel and Mechal, and Bubby and Zaidy. Tehilla really enjoyed that and was sad to see them go. Now she is napping.

I haven't explained enough about where Tehilla is at medically. Tehilla had the Fontan surgery with a fenestration, which is a hole made to allow the mixing of bloods within the heart. Sometime in the future, through a heart catheter, they will close it.

She is currently on oxygen because her oxygen saturation is too low. It's low because she has fluids that she needs to cough out of her lungs. She has been coughing and getting there but still has more to go.

A decision has not been made yet regarding another chest tube. She still is 1 kg heavier than she was before the surgery, which is because of fluids.  Her x-ray showed some fluids on her left side that they are hoping will work themselves out without another chest tube.
