It is Monday and we are still in the hospital. Lucia had a great day yesterday, but today her heart is racing. Most kids have a heart rate of 120-130. An acceptable heart rate for Lulu is from 140-160, a very fast heart rate for her is 160-180. Hers has been 200-210 for a few hours now. Doctors are very concerned with how hard it is working, especially with the large hole in it. Also, because of the high heart rate, it is causing her to spike a fever.
We were hoping to get out of PICU today, at least to make it onto "the floor", where she would be less monitored..and that would pave our way home...but I think that may have been wishful.
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.
