I guess Kayleigh has her own way of showing us that this procedure was not supposed to happen. Late last night, before Aimee and I went to bed, Kayleigh had an hypertensive episode. She dropped her sats fairly low, but never spiraled out of control like she normally does. Kayleigh must be getting used to some of the sedation medication because they had to bump up her dosage and switch over to Morphine to really get her to relax. She slowly recovered back to normal.
Around 6:30 in the morning, we got a phone call that she had another episode, but this time she spiraled out of control and needed to be paralyzed along with more sedation medication. During this episode, she was not responding like normal and she is currently on a much higher pressure control setting at 100% oxygen. The x-ray came back showing her left lung is collapsing. They have started some treatments to fix it and hopefully Kayleigh can turn things around. We are not sure if this is pneumonia coming back or her elevated pressures causing her lungs to close up. Either or is not good.
Please pray for Kayleigh and that she will keep fighting no matter what gets in her way.
Thank you and God Bless,
