Hope for tommorrow!
Well here we are on our sixth day since baby Avery graced our presence. We had a pretty good day with all sorts of visitors and sweet gifts for Avery Mae! She had a bout with low blood pressure again and on and off heparin, but all in all she is still stable. At one point when I was in with the cardiologist, as we discussed her chest leak, he said that Avery had a strong enough heart to pump against the flow of ecmo! Good news!I also forgot that tomorrow is CDH prayer and awareness day...coincidentally Avery's surgery day! We will have more prayers on this day for CDH awareness than any other. God really does work in mysterious ways. Other than losing my camera sd card and not being able to get my old Honda out of park, we are feeling very blessed. Looking forward to and a little scared for her surgery tomorrow, but when that is over they can assess her organ placement. Then we move to the next step of weening her off the ecmo machine. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. As I sat with Avery today, an Angel One heli was taking off causing vibrations and she quivered and opened both eyes almost all the way! Simple pleasures.Thanks again, Shane father to Kaitlyn Mac and Avery Mae.
