1:30 update and complication
We received an update at 1:30 that Leiney Grace would be moved to the PCICU in 15 to 20 minutes. We were waiting on Dr. Bradley to come speak to us after he went with Leiney Grace to the unit. At 2PM we still had not heard anything and shortky after, Dr. Bradley's nurse practitioner and physician's Asst. walked in - I knew that wasn't good. They explained that it would be a while before Leiney Grace was in the unit as Dr. Bradley saw some blood in her chest tube. He decided to open Leiney Grace back up and proceed to find the source of the bleeding. UGH! The thought of that makes me so sad. But, Cathy and Jennifer siad, better to do this now that take her to the unit, watch the drainage tube, and then take her back to surgery later today. We expect the next update at 3. I was holding it all together til this "little bump in the road". Beeper going off now.
