Last night Teresa had a little set back . Her blood pressure and oxygen were dropping too low so her evening dose of medicine had to be lowered.
This morning she did much better. Her blood pressure was stable all day and her sats even reached 82 (with oxygen).
This is good news and we hope she will be able to reach the maximum dose with out any further side affects.
Her liver is also being affected by her heart causing it to become enlarged. The pressure in her heart and lungs are so high the blood from her liver can not return and is backing up in this organ .
Today Lucy and Mary had their ballet recital so Alex came to the hospital to stay with Teresa while Ed and I ran to the recital.
Sitting at the recital all I could do was worry about Teresa in the hospital , even though I knew she was stable and Alex was texting me every 30 minutes with an update.
It's hard to balance the feelings of happiness while at the same time the worry for another childs' life.
Life goes on even when their is pain and suffering in it.
Please keep in your prayers the little girl in the room next to Teresa. She is Gemma's friend from the infusion clinic. She is having a very difficult time right now as she prepares for an upcoming surgery .
Teresa really seemed to enjoy some one on one time today with Alex. He said she talked his ear off!
