Today has been a day of rest for Lily Grace. Tonight she still remains in critical condition, heavily sedated and intubated. Since the discovery of the blood clot in her heart this morning, the cardiologists, surgeons and hematologists have been discussing a course of action. Today they have decided to use high doses of blood thinners to attempt to dissolve the clot. This tactic will be re-evaluated in the morning if it has not changed. Lily's blood pressure is being maintained through dopamine and epinephrine. Her heart rate is still extremely tachacardic (fast) and that is being helped by Milrinone...used for patients suffering from heart failure. Lily's ventilator is giving her oxygen and nitric oxide gas. Lily is on a cooling/heating blanket to keep her temperature at 35 degrees Celsius...brrrrrr!
Rest our sweet girl, rest.
Evening and morning and at noon will I utter my complaint
