- Heart Cath/Biopsy to rule out rejection
- Placement of Central Venous Catheter
- CRRT Dialysis
On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) she is at a 3. Today’s procedures are very high risk because the virus has attacked every organ in her body. Her lungs are not fully healed and re-intubation is going to be tricky. She has to be heavily sedated for the dialysis tube that will be placed in her neck. She will be on continual dialysis from anywhere upto 6 days-6 weeks. She will be intubated and heavily sedated until they stop the dialysis. They are going to do a heart cath/biopsy because her heart function has slightly decreased which will tell us whether her heart is in rejection or just overworked from the virus. Her liver is still enlarged but that always happens when she gets sick.
- That her body would cooperate in the OR.
- That they do not have to use contrast because her creatinine levels are high
- Peace and security for our family.
