She had a high heart rate this morning around 6. It was tachycardia but not Extreme tachycardia like she had back in October. So, we started off the morning with Julianne being surrounded by the cardiology team. Putting ice on her face, doing EKG's, dosing her with Adenosine. The Adenosine would only bring her out for like 10 seconds, then her heart rate would be right back up in the 180's. It was like a milder version of the scariness from back in October. She also had a chest x-ray and echo both of which didn't show anything that should be causing this. They didn't feel that it was an arrhythmia causing it. Her temp was normal until a little after 8. They took her temp again and she had a fever. We were told that the coils placed yesterday could cause a fever. The fever, in turn, was causing the higher heart rate. So, she was given tylenol and motrin intermittently and watched closely. Her fever has broken and her heart rate is basically back to normal, as well.
She also has a stuffy nose so, Julianne is still not her smiley self. She didn't sleep much this morning and was really fidgety all night and she's working a little harder to breathe. So, she's pretty tired and cranky today. Who could blame her. We did get a few little smiles and we were very thankful for that. :)
Julianne is still on schedule for surgery tomorrow. She's 2nd case so she probably won't go until noon-ish or maybe later. Julianne's doctors feel like she is a great candidate for the Glenn tomorrow. Please continue to keep Julianne in your prayers. Thank you so much for all of the encouragement and prayers so far. :)
