Surprise, surprise, is what Ally had in store today. Ally the last few days has been running a temp. and not feeling so well. So this morning, Jill and the nurse had an appointment to bring Ally to duPont for cultures, and a new tube placement. However, on the way, Ally started to destat into the 40's, and just as Jill was about to change her trache she came back, and did not look so blue. A few minutes later, things proceeded to worsen, the oxygen tank started to leak and they could not get oxygen to Ally. Jill had to call an ambulance to come get Ally. Till the ambulance got there things were under control and the tank was working but there was not enough oxygen left to take Ally to duPont. So, Ally went to Pottstwon ER they did cultures and stabilized her. They then transported Ally to duPont.
So here we are, yet again. Hotel duPont!! Looks like Ally has another line infection. We spoke with transplant today to see if Pittsburgh would move up the date to seeing us. We are scared that if we waste anymore time with all these infections, that we won't get the chance to get on the list to have her transplanted in time. There is definitely a sense of urgency. Transplant is planning on calling Pittsburgh tomorrow because they agree that she needs to be listed as soon as possible.
Right now Ally is resting comfortably she is still requiring quite a bit of oxygen. They also put her ventilator on a rate so now that is delivering some of her breaths. We will update tomorrow hopefully with more info.
