Update on Baby Remington Craft 2/17/17

We skipped a little on the update yesterday.

Remi was moved to another room in the PICU and then we went to visit Kaiden, Addisyn, & Gracelyn for a bit. (We miss them sooo much) 😥

Remi turned really blue yesterday after a blood transfusion. Today Remi's 💜 has been over circulating, then under circulating...That causes her heart to stress more than they'd like, so they are keeping a close eye on her.

She still has her Central Line installed but no more IV fluids at this time. If she continues to over circulate then she will be hooked back up.

As of right now Remi only has the basic monitoring hookups and her NG Tube for feeding (less tubes and wires makes it so much easier to hold her). #RallyForRemington #chdawareness #HLHS
