Not a good night
20/2/08 Skyla had her operation yesterday. She went in a 2pm and came out at 6pm. They did the gastrostomy, fundoplication, toungue tie, she also had a top lip tie and they found that she also had a large hiatus hernia. The surgeon said it was successful which was great. She remained stable throughout the op. Over night she had a tough night though. She was very restless. Skyla had to be heavily sedated. She has had a heap of morphine, midaz, rock, presidix (not sure of spelling) and valegan and she is still fighting it. Skyla has been splinting her chest, dropping her total volumes on the vent, dropping her sats and she had an xray this morning. Her lungs are very wet. They tried to put an arterial line in her last night a few times and have also tried a few times this morning with no luck. They will try again today after the drs rounds. I just hope my little can keep fighting. The pictures are of my brave little girl post op. The other is her huge hospital file and she is only 19wks old.
