TIME TO TAKE A BREAK
Charlotte can now officially take a break for a while. Dr. Mendeloff was able to successfully get her hooked up on ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation). This heart/lung bypass machine will give her little heart and lungs a chance to rest and hopefully recover enough to be able to function properly when the time comes. She seems to be stabilizing so now we will wait. Wait to see if her lactates come down, wait to see if she can produce some urine, wait to see how she handles a reduction in some of her medicines, wait to see if the bleeding in her brain will stay under control, and wait to see how hard she can fight. The woods are all around but a path has been laid out for her to walk. Now we have to wait and see how far down that path she can go.
