That is what the doctor told me this morning about Liviana's current condition. He said he was surprised she was having as much difficult as she is given how stellar she was doing before surgery but it is not unexpected for post-op, he just did not expect it with her.
She had a rough moment in the middle of the night and they seem to find she will get agitated and her sats drop and they have had to help her recover by increasing her vent, and one time bagging her.
They have given her blood, not a complete transfusion but still some assistance. They are hoping the increase in red blood cells will help her carry the oxygen through her system. Her blood gases remain okay to good and she has no sign of acidosis and has quite a buffer before they would be concerned about it.
I talked to the doctor for a while but I am drawing a blank currently on the rest of our conversations about Liviana. We are not in a danger zone and he says the next 24-48 hours will be important.
I am so frightened for my little Liviana....
