We saw the cardiologist this morning and had all the normal testing to try to figure out why Ella has a sudden need for constant oxygen. The good news is their isn't any fluid around her heart or lungs, the bad news is she will be on oxygen for awhile. During Ella's Glenn surgery the right diaphragm was damaged and is now paralyzed. We knew this had happened and were told about it shortly after the surgery, you may remember I even mentioned it on here as a prayer request back then. They said at the time that it shouldn't cause any problems, and that in a matter of about 6 weeks it should heal on it's own and work properly again. Unfortunately it is now causing problems, this is putting pressure on her lungs making it harder to breath, and this makes her breaths short, fast and shallow. Also it makes her have a grunting noise and cough quite a bit. We are just almost 2 weeks post surgery now so we should be looking at about 4 weeks more of oxygen. We are not sure why she didn't need oxygen before and she does now, but as long as it doesn't get worse this is ok. With this new discovery comes a new prayer request, it is important that she does not get pneumonia. Again we were strongly cautioned to keep miss Ella healthy. We are praying that her diaphragm will heal on it's own sooner rather than later so that we can get Ella off of the oxygen as quickly as possible. Also Ella has still not been eating well so she hasn't been gaining much weight and we think this is partially because of the damaged diaphragm so we are going to try to up her calories to 30 from the 24 she was getting before. Please be praying that this does the trick, and that her stomach handles this change well with minimal vomiting. Thank you so much for your continued prayers for our family!
