Evening everyone, momma here. Sorry I’m just updating now.
Surgery went a little longer than we anticipated but our girl is doing okay this evening 😊 spirit wise she’s smiling and awake.
Her dad surprised us with a hospital visit while she was in surgery and it helped calm her and make her smile big time when she woke up.
Of course it was a big pick me up for me as well ☺ really needed that 💜
Surgery went longer due to the surgeons running into something we didn’t expect to find.
They opened Ceci’s chest to begin the port removal and was greeted by a massive pocket of infection. A cavity formed behind and around sis’s port and was highly infected.
They had to remove the port and perform a clean out to remove all the pus and blood.
We did not expect to find something like this but it explains how in the world sissy got sepsis and this awful blood infection.
It caused damage to her chest skin so the surgeon said they had to cut out a part of the area and make a new scar line.
With us finding this massive infection in her chest there’s so many bad things that can happen or have happened but we’re not even going to talk about them.
We’re trying to stay as positive as possible! God is on our side 🙌
Now that the port is out we’re hoping the iv antibiotics will begin helping and cure this blood stream infection that is causing so many problems.
At this point the anesthesia team was able to place a deep peripheral line in her fore arm to allow them to continue giving Ceci fluids and medications. But we know it won’t last 😔 and the team knows too. The experts said they had a very hard time getting access.
So Monday they have scheduled for Ceci to head back into the operating room to have a PIC line placed. They did not want to do it today due to severity of the infection.
Please pray for a good weekend for sis.
