Still at the Hospital

The cardioversion procedure went well yesterday, but minutes before we were to be discharged (around 3pm), they saw that her pacemaker was doing some things that it's not supposed to be doing. The monitor showed it was "spiking on the T wave". Don't pretend to know what that means - even though they did explain it to me twice. Basically, her pacemaker needs some settings adjusted and, if we went home, she was at risk for some arrythmia stuff, so they decided to keep her here, especially since we were coming in today (Mon.) anyway for some tests on her coronary artery flow. They saw something Thurs. that Dr. D wants to take a closer look at.

The night went ok - Bailey got sick in the middle of the night and feels sick again now. Don't know if it's anesthesia stuff from yesterday, or heart stuff, or what.

So, I'm going back to be with her in her room. Just wanted to give an update.

Have a great day everyone - I hear it's beautiful out there!

Sorry to hear about the arrhythmias. I hope it all turns out well. I know how frustrating that is because Alex still has them very regularly. Alex is having another pacemaker surgery June 4 due to continued arrythimas. We'll keep trying to get these girls figured out!!We will keep you guys in our prayers. I know Bailey is a fighter. I enjoyed the pics from DC and Disney.

Also...there is a little 5-month-old girl at Riley this morning (April 30) whose name is Hope Parker. She is having surgery right now for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (hemi-Fontan). Please pray for her and Dr Turrentine and her parents. Thanks.

Tonight there was a short story on ABC nightly news about a 5 year old boy in SC whose heart failed and is now at home with a Berlin heart and doing great. They talked about how only a few kids in the US have them, how great they are, etc. and I thought of you right away! Hang in there and we will be thinking of you!
