Hopeful for improvement

Sweet Maili has been recovering well in the hospital since her surgery last week. Her mother is worried that the oxygen levels are sometimes low. However, the echo today showed that Maili’s heart is looking good, and the doctor encouraged us that any saturation of over 75% is acceptable for Maili’s heart now.

It could be that part of the connection made in Maili’s heart surgery is a little narrow, and causing her oxygen to be lower. But the plan for Maili is to see how she adjusts and improves; we are hopeful that she will continue to get better and better every day. If not, it could be that she needs a catheterization to widen the connection and help the blood flow.

If everything goes well, Maili might even be coming back home to us in Jaffa tomorrow!
