Out of PICU

Just to say that Vera is out of intensive care this evening, 2 days after the operation.

On hindsight, it was a blessing in disguise only the adenoids surgery was done, as doing the fundo as well might have put her in more discomfort than she can handle - (imagine pain in your nose and throat and tummy). The fundo is KIV for now.

Yesterday she experienced quite a long period of desaturation even on the mask and with oxygen support. This was due to copious amounts of secretions.

Today her sats are better, which is why they have transferred her out.

It remains to be seen how much of a difference the surgery will make to her breathing.

Fingers crossed.

Thanks all for your concern and prayers sent her way.
