well long night
Little Ireland is just fighting and fighting. After her surgery her belly was swelling too much and the doc decided to go back in and open her belly cut to let some of her "guts" out to release her pressure. When he got in there her belly was full of her blood bleeding from her abdominal wall. We knew this was a big risk because of the ECMO machine she has been on blood thinners the whole time. So anyway, she is doing well and they have taken her "inners" out of the belly cavity and they being held in a wrap to keep from drying out. They will keep them this way so they can keep track of the blood lose and it will also help her lungs have the most room to expand to get her off of ECMO in the next 24-48 hours... This little girl just keeps us on our toes for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!
