Sweet little boy/Kelsi and her sats

I absolutely love Cohen's age right now. He is just so cute and learning so many new things. He is saying new words everyday now. My favorite at the moment is yeah. He says it with so much enthusiasm. He use to just say mm when he meant yes and picked up yeah when he was in the hospital this last time. Also his favorite thing to do right now is walk around in shoes. Kelsi's princess shoes are his favorite; then my stilettos. He walks better in them than I do! He's just so much fun! I love seeing him grow up and his personality shine.
So Dr. Cowley spoke with us regarding Kelsi's sats the other day. He wants us to monitor it 3 times a day for 3 weeks. If it is mainly lower than 85 he will go in with a catheter and close the hole in her Fontan. So far (since Friday) it has only once been above 85... I'm really nervous for her to have that done. I don't know what too much pressure in her lungs would do. There aren't anymore surgeries planned before transplant so it just scares me that she'd need one sooner than later. I'm not sure what recovery time would be after they close the hole. Usually procedures in the cath lab only require them to wake up and hold down liquid and solids. But maybe with this one they'll need to monitor her longer. Two kids at PCMC would be hard to manage.
Thank you so much for keeping both of them in your prayers. :o)

Ashley,
I don't know how you keep all that medical info on TWO kids straight! I'm so sorry to hear that Kelsi may be facing an unplanned procedure. You'll need to clone yourself! We'll pray that doesn't happen.
Taryn goes in for surgery on the 31st so we'll have to have lunch one day if you are still at PCMC. I'm hoping some of your strength will rub off on me! :)

Take care,
Michele

You never cease to amaze me, Ashley. Both children remain in my prayers, as do you and your family.

Love always,
