Another Cath…

Sorry I haven’t posted here in a few days. I have been so tired and overwhelmed with everything going on. Logan’s O2 stats continued to be lower than they wanted them to be after the Bi-Directional Glenn shunt. Also, now that they know there was significant blood flow backed up in his upper half of his body they were worried that a collateral (small vein) had widened to allow blood to flow back down. They got in there and there was indeed a very large collateral that was draining blood flow back down and away from his heart. They coiled that collateral off.
I am still frustrated and angry because I know that this whole situation was a domino effect set off by one doctor who overreacted to some low saturations once we were sent to the floor. This sent Logan back to the ICU where he was constantly pricked and poked, and not fed, messed with, which made him so angry and creates high resistance and not good blood flow, which then makes the doctors want to do more interventions. 
 
Its absolute craziness.
 
It is the most tiring and frustrating thing to watch.  And none of the doctors listened to us about when he was in pain or uncomfortable. 
I really hope no one ever has to watch their baby being treated this way.
It is excruciatingly painful. 
I TRULY believe that we are now on the right track. At this point their really isn’t anything else they could to him.  They are comfortable with his o2 levels now, and they are taking the arterial line out today, and his NG tube. I truly believe that Logan will be home in the next week. Thank you everyone for all your support and encouragement I don’t think I could have gotten thru this without it.
 
Hugs to everyone.
