Rosie had a busy night. The bleed in the brain meant that all blood thinning products essential for mechanical hearts were stopped. The Levitronix device that Rosie is on does not need such a high dose of blood thinning products as the Berlin heart, hence the reason for the change. However, Rosie had to have three chamber changes yesterday and overnight. This is a risky procedure which requires her own heart to work on its own for the short period of time while they switch to a new circuit. We are waiting to hear what the plan for today is, the ideal would be to start blood thinning products and have the drain removed from the brain, but the neuro surgeon needs to be happy regarding the brain bleed. We should know more after ward round and the neuro surgeons visit. Four weeks on the Berlin Heart machine to date and we can’t thank you enough all for your continued love and support.
Highlight of today will be when George and Grace come up to see their little sister x
