Operation Today

19/2/08 Today is Skylas big day for her fundo and gastrostomy operation. They will also be releasing her toungue tie. She may have to go back on the nitric machine as she wont be able to have her sidenifil for her pulmonary hypotensin through her peg for a few days till her stomach is back to normal. She was a very good over night. Her last episode was at 10:30am yesterday morning, but she did put a little show on for her surgeon last night when he came to see her. She vomited twice. Cheeky she is. She hadnt vomited all day. Thankfully she didnt desat with both vomits. I think she will be on the ventilater for a few days to a week. Hopefully not too long cause she gets very lazy on the vent, and lets it do all her breathing. Skyla is 4th on the list for her op today.Her surgeon has decided to do an open cut as she is still pretty small, 3.58kg. So she will be back on the morphine and midaz to keep her pain free and nice and relaxed after the op. He will go through her old diaphragmatic hernia scar. He said he may have to make it a little bit bigger though. The surgeon said roughly 1pm today. Hope it all goes to plan and she is smooth sailing through her operation. I will try and update tonight after the operation.
