Secondly came an echo, and this also was very sad for her, however in the caring arms of her father, she eventually fell asleep. This was good because Meera’s heart defects are incredibly complex, and the echo took a very long time. Nearly all the staff from the department seemed to pop into the room at one point or another to look at the images from Meera’s heart, as the complexities of the defects were very interesting.
Her oxygen saturation today was between 57-72%, and her cardiologist explained that this is really not a safe condition to be sending her away from hospital today. She also would like to do further assessments from a CT scan to understand more about Meera’s heart and help plan intervention for her. Therefore, Meera was admitted to the hospital today. She continued to catch the attention of a few doctors as they passed by her, shocked to see this cyanotic little girl.
