Biopsy & Bleeding

Evynn remained 'stable'. Her underlying heart rate has gone from 50 yesterday morning to high 90s and is a sinus rhythm (normal). Even though for her that is an appropriate rate, right now it is not enough to keep her blood pressure up, so she remains on the pacer at 130. She has had excessive bleeding and is being infused about 100ml of blood or blood products and hour. At 10am, surgeons will investigating if the sutures for the ECMO are what's causing the bleeding.  They will also test her heart function and do a biopsy to eliminate the possibility of rejection. Doing the biopsy is high risk in her state but necessary. Later today they will also do another 'awake test', by stopping the muscle relaxer.


  1. I'm thinking of you all during these tough days. Hugs.
