Day 17 – 13th November

Thomas is all zipped up! Took an hour for the surgeons to close his chest and stitch him up.

Aiming for a completely settled day. No interventions or changes just to let him rest. Chest closure is a big deal for him as it changes all the pressures and way his heart and lungs works.

He managed well until 4pm when he dropped his blood pressure and went back into SVT.

The doctors decided to stop his diuretic drugs in an attempt to raise his BP, try cooling him to help with the rhythm and wait to see if he corrects it himself. He hadn’t managed his by the time I left him at 23.30.
