PCICU Day 217

Evanna got to Edmonton safe and sound, and we arrived a few hours later. Just like Calgary, the medical team here is a little puzzled as to what's going on, as again, her xray and ECHO show nothing of significance. They've decided to hold tight tonight, keep her as sedated as possible and do a CT Angiogram tomorrow morning to see if that'll show anything.
They've continued to keep her sedated because the moment she wakes up, she starts to freak out, fight the ventilator and all her numbers are terrible (ie. her heart rate goes up, she desats, blood pressure increases, and her CO2 climbs).

Since Evanna has arrived, Dr. Aditia placed a new arterial line (yeah!), given a second blood transfusion in less than 24 hours (she got one at 11pm last night), and converted a bunch of her oral sedation back to IV.

Finally, I have caved and created a Facebook Page for this blog/Evanna. Over the last several months, I have received numerous "friend requests", and because not everyone has Instagram (@kierrai) and it's not easy to always remember to check for updates on the blog, I decided it was time to create a Facebook page.
I was somewhat reluctant to create a page for a long time, as overtime, Facebook makes it so less and less people see updates unless you pay them to "promote" your page, but this is the only solution I could think of for the time being. I haven't decided whether this will be a permanent thing or something I will eventually delete, but for now, it is what it is. So either click HERE and "Like" our family page or just seach "The Irvine Home // Evanna's Special Heart" on Facebook.

Thanks for the flood of sweet messages, prayers and well wishes. I'll be sure to update everyone when we have more answers tomorrow.
