Quick Update

Callie did well with her cath yesterday, it was a very long cath procedure. We handed her off at 1215pm and didn't see her again till 7pm. She stayed intubated all night, due to the bleeding she had in the cath lab. Also, her lungs needed some time to rest. They were able to finish what needed to be ballooned and her pressures look much better now. These results from the cath seem to be more promising for the future, than the last cath. Callie was extubated today around 3pm and is doing well on oxygen. Mainly just sleeping because she was on some pretty heavy sedation when she was intubated. Praying for an easy, smooth night!!!! Will left today around 10am to head back for Jacksonville:( I meet with Callie's heart surgeon, Dr. Hanley, tomorrow at 930. Just to try and get some answers on certain issues that are going on with Callie. Will update more on that later. Hoping to get her out of the hospital tomorrow afternoon, if all goes well:) Will update soon, off to sit with Miss Callie:)
