I asked what was up and he said 'well, one of two things are gonna happen. 1.) we're going to send her home on O2, or 2.) we're gonna keep her here over the weekend, then next week they'll determine whether we consider keeping her and doing surgery' (Whhhat?!), then he says 'the next 24 hours will tell us more.' So I say:' Soooo, we're staying another night?..cuz I didn't even know that much...' and he says: 'Yes, definitely one more night and we'll reevaluate tomorrow'.
So we're here for at least one more day possibly more...(?) Just to repeat a bit... her oxygen levels are good when she's sitting still or sleeping, but the minute she starts playing, babbling, fussing, crying (basically moving), they dip in the 60s. They want them above 75.
She's fine with the O2 nasal cannula, but when they shut off the oxygen, her O2 sats dip. Here is a pic of her with our day nurse Kristi:
She has an IV line in her leg/ankle and she keeps bending her foot and causing the alarms in the IV to go off, so the nurse last night put this big 'ol sock on her to stop her from pulling at it, or putting it in her mouth. It looks so funny.
So all day today they are going to try to wean her off the oxygen and see how she's doing....let's keep our fingers crossed... but I don't know what I'm crossing them for (honestly!)... I kind of want her surgery over with, but I kind of want her to go home too...I guess I'm crossing them that she comes off the oxygen, goes home, has a chance for her arteries to grow, then comes back in 4 weeks for her surgery. Yeah, that sounds good, right?
