Continuing to be glad for stability. Fluids are coming off while blood pressures remain good. While this is fine, Nicole and I are having trouble relaxing because we know this is only a temporary state before we take a big step either one way or another. Tomorrow morning the doctors will do a chest exploration to determine the quality of Evie's heart function. What they find will determine what happens next. Our options could be either a third surgery or to begin to attempt to wean her off ECMO--depending on the doctors assessment. Tomorrow's exploration will be an incredibly important event.
To our support team back at the park: perhaps our next visitors could bring me a few pairs of clean socks (T-shirts and underwear are still doing okay).
