Post Op Day 7
Today has been a hard day for little Jack. After a few days of strong improvement Jack's blood pressure began to decrease without responding to the medications. The doctors have been trying to figure out all day how to correct the problems he was having, but thus far to no avail. The blood pressure in his lungs was high enough for the doctors to be concerned. They decided to take him to the Cath lab this evening, inject dye into his heart and see what the problem was. Through the procedure tonight they hopefully will be able to decide if the problem is with his anatomy and would need another operation, or if it is something that can be corrected with medication. If need be they will operate in the morning. We will keep you updated.
