Just to make this more difficult...

This morning we were called at 3am as Evynn was struggling with her blood pressure. She had a low grade fever and her limbs were extremely cold.  The staff struggled to keep her blood pressure up by increasing her ini-trops(meds) and giving her blood volume with albumin. There are a few theories as to why all this has occurred. One is that she just needs the surgery, another is more clotting, or that she may be septic (infection).
She was scheduled to go to O.R. at 8am, but now her surgeon is concerned about the risk of her being septic.  They are currently debating other plans and possibly delaying surgery 10days to 6 weeks.
