Guest Blog by CysticLady: Update on CysticGal

CysticGal went into the hospital on Monday.  Yesterday's ABG showed very high pCO2, or carbon dioxide level.  They made arrangements for her to be on BiPAP at least when sleeping.

This morning, CysticGal had a heart catheterization, as part of her transplant workup.  I think she did well during the procedure.  Afterward you have to lay down still for eight hours or so in order to let the wound heal and reduce the risk of blood clots.  She was pretty sleepy all day and also wore the BiPAP.  We are hoping that the CO2 level comes down.

We are very thankful for T^Money for going to the hospital and being there when CysticGal woke up.  She also kept her family up to date.  What a super friend! 

When CysticGal first entered the hospital on Monday, we anticipated that she would be there a few days, get hydrated and get back out.  Now that the CO2 retention has reared his ugly head, we don't really know how long she will be locked up. 

Please send warm and fuzzy thoughts the way of CysticGal!

    We're going to get that CO2 down, get CysticMom up there ASAP, soon followed by CysticDad, get her listed and get after this. Maybe CysticDad will even get to fix CG his Chicken Soup and other curing dishes.
