Mr Haw has just been up to Ocean Ward to let us know that Jessica’s latest surgery has been successful. However, the pressures in her pulmonary arteries are a little on the higher side and the team are concerned that she has grown extra blood vessels around her lungs (known as collaterals) as a response to having lower oxygen saturations which may be causing this increased pressure. If she doesn’t progress as well as they would like during the rest of today and overnight then it may be that she will need to have a cardiac catheter procedure done during the next 24-48 hours to place coils inside these extra blood vessels to block them off.
She is being transferred down to PICU at the moment and we are hoping to be able to see her at some point in the next hour or so. Thank you so much to everyone who has been keeping our little miracle in their thoughts and prayers – we have been so blessed to be able to take another step forward in Jessica’s journey today.
