Plan for today was CT scan, then off to theatre to change back on to a Berlin heart. However, a CT scan first thing showed two new bleeds in Rosie’s brain and also indicated that she has suffered a small stroke along the way. Whilst the bleeds are minor, not causing any pressure on her brain and not requiring intervention in theatre, plans to switch back to a Berlin heart are now back on hold.
Rosie has also had to have a circuit change because of the build up of fibrins in the circuit. So Rosie continues to walk the tightrope between clots and bleeds, and we hope and pray that she keeps her balance!
