August 29-Update 1

Update Saturday 1:30 PM MST – Dad

This morning Kristen had complications from last evenings surgery and they had to go back in. My understanding is that the inserted catheter was kinked inside her arm so she was not getting the medicine needed to combat the clotting. Kris is out of surgery and the Dr said it now looks better in there, it has all been redone (what a pain). The plan now is to go back in,, in 24 hours to see where we are at. So that will be about 11  AM Sun. Morning… keeping our fingers crossed Kris remains stable until then.

Sat. Morning – Laurie

Kristen had a good night all things considered. Every hour they have had to wake her up, check her pupils, and ask her a series of questions. This will continue all throughout the day. They are checking for signs of a stroke or brain bleed, both risks after the procedure she had last night. She has passed each one with flying colors, even telling the nurse this morning she needed to come up with new material, lol.

I am hoping she will go in for the ultrasound to check the status of the clot around 5p, hopefully earlier and will update again at that point.

    You must be exhausted from the hourly wake-up ‘calls’! I’m glad you have good company 😉
    Love and comfort as usual!!
