Baylee Update

Baylee was under for 3 hours. She did fine the during the procedure but she has been running a fever the entire time in recovery. It spiked to 104 and is down to 102 now but I'm thinking they will keep her overnight.

The pressure in her heart/lungs was 60 and normal is 30. They gave her oxygen/nitric oxide and some other medicine to try to bring the pressure down and none of it worked. They are calling this moderate hypertension. The Dr. said that he doesn't think the right ventricular hypertrophy is causing her seizures. I have my doubts of this so we will see. Since she complains of her belly hurting while having these episodes I'm going to push for a CT scan of her belly and rule out anything there. They also took blood and are sending it off so we should have the results in a couple days. That will check just about everything (ie: liver/stomach etc).
thats about all we know for now. I will keep u updated! Please continue praying for our Little Baylee!
