Its also a little stressful because its not a private room and our roommates are frequently fighting and cursing at each other. Not exactly the environment we'd choose, but hopefully we won't be there long. Kent is spending the night with Julianne tonight.
Here is a pic in Julianne's new room and also some pics of her in the outfit WE dressed her in.
Tonight they started Julianne on Sodolol for her arrhythmia. She'll get that three times a day and they will do daily EKG's for the next few days. Then on Wednesday they'll do another study using her pacing wires to make sure they can't make the arrhythmia come back. That's how they'll know the medicine is working. What happens is that she'll have an extra heartbeat and then it will cause a rapid heart rate. So, they're getting her medicated for it so that it won't happen when we leave. Dr. Breitbart said this is something she can potentially outgrow.
They've given us all the paperwork about the different drugs she's on and what side effects to look for. We also have paperwork on what to look for to recognize potential problems after we get home. Kent and I will definitely be studying those papers.
Finally, here is a video from this morning in the ICU that I just couldn't resist posting.
Thank you for all of your continued prayers, support and words of encouragement. We are truly thankful for each and every one of them.
