Avery had a calm night. No major issues. When I called this morning to check on her, the nurse told me that the heart surgeons were planning on doing a chest clean out sometime today. Basically the surgeons go in a clean up her open chest and put a new dressing on. Well, one of the doctors called me a little after 12pm and told me that they had done the chest clean out and also partially closed her chest. Yikes! The chest is not completely closed yet, but this is a very big step for Miss Avery. The team is watching her closely to see how her body responds to the closure. I am very nervous and anxious. Each time there is any small adjustment to Avery's care we all grit our teeth and brace for some setbacks. So far, she is ok, but has potential to get worse at any moment. As of right now, her stats have gone down since the partial closure. Shane and I are both on pins and needles. Right now Avery is on some meds to keep her blood pressure up and everyone is hoping her other numbers go back up. Each time adjustments are made to her care, there are concerns about how her body will respond. She is so sensitive to changes. We are going to be close by her side for the next 24 hours to keep a loving eye on our precious girl.
