Grace is doing well. She came out of the surgery like a champ and actually has pink fingers and toes. Her oxygen level is in the 80s (it had been in upper 60s, low 70s). YEA! She looks great. Her blood pressure was a little high and it looks like the blood that was draining out of her drain is getting less.
This surgery was not the surgery that was planned. I have to admit that I cried when they told me they were going to do this surgery (Glenn) because it requires a Fontan procedure in about a year. I didn't want my baby to have to go through open heart surgery again. But it was the best thing and the only way to help her. We are blessed to have a super duper medical team.
She's in the ICU now. This is probably the stillist I will ever see my girl. She did well last night despite being poked for blood more than the IV (her blood coagulates fast). She was not happy but she went to sleep around 9ish and woke up at 3 a.m. for an hour and a half. Grace is a fighter and of that I am glad. It's tough being a parent of a critically ill child. I'm lucky that hers can be fixed.
I'm posting pictures of her in her styling hospital gown and in picu.
