Yesterday was another good day for Sydney. Dr. Flake came by this morning and is very pleased with her progress. He has increased her Lasiks and wants to do surgery tomorrow afternoon (fri.) if she does not gain anymore fluid. We went over the procedure and the biggest complication is the bleeding. She has been on ecmo, she needs to be on blood thinners so the ecmo does not clot. My anxiety has increased just a tad!
Please keep Sydney in your prayers. Thank You

My son had his surgery repair while still on ECMO, doctors felt Ian was stable on ECMO and it was better to get the surgery done and relieve the pressure on his left lung and his heart. He was able to come off ECMO 2 days after surgery. I will be praying that Sydney's surgery goes very well with no complications and that she can come off ECMO soon after surgery. Stay strong--sending you many positive thoughts and energy to get through Friday and the days to follow surgery.
