I was so happy to come this morning and see a sleeping beauty.
She is much calmer today and dozing off and on just like she should be.
She has had a fever since coming out of surgery. They weren't too concerned yesterday, but since she still has one today they seem to be a little more concerned. During rounds this morning they discussed it and the possibility of infection or some kind of complication of the heart.
An echo was ordered to rule out any issue with her heart.
Thankfully, the echo looked "really good" so we were able to rule out any post surgery complication. Her temp is likely due to the little cold she had before surgery. It's nothing of major concern right now it will likely just keep us in the ICU a little longer as it's taking longer to wean her off all the meds and oxygen.
Thank you for all your prayers, support, and encouragement.
It is such a relief to see her resting today.
The plan for today is to try to lower her oxygen a little and maybe try to wean her off some meds, but it seems like they are wanting to just take things really slow so we'll see.
