Annie’s heart echo yesterday showed that her heart function has not improved at all even though she’s been on medication for almost a week. Her IV medicine was stopped Tuesday overnight and switched to oral medication. Today, her IV was placed back in for her to receive the IV medication.
Words/phrases I don’t like, all heard from Annie’s medical team within the last 24 hours:
congenital heart disease
open heart surgery
low heart function
we don’t know why
we can’t tell you what to expect
the textbook says so, but I can’t say we always see good results
we will keep trying
wait some more
we will know in a week if her heart can handle the next surgery or if we need to “list” her
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” -Revelation 21:4
Oh, heaven, come quickly.
