Just out of surgery and into ICU
Good morning, Much of the night was spent attempting to find the source of the bleeding around Iain's left lung. We initially thought that source was found, but at around 2:30 AM CST it was determined that his bleeding was still too high and another round of surgical investigation was performed.
That was wrapped up around 5:30 AM CST. Although there were no obvious sources of bleeding found, small fixes were made and it appears that this bleeding has been reduced! He has been packed up with gauze and transitioned to ICU where he'll remain on the ecmo machine while his heart and lungs "rest." He is stable for now which is the best that we can hope for after 17 hours in surgery.
Our current plan is to keep him in a very quiet and stable state for the next three or four days while the bleeding is monitored.
Thank you everyone for your outpouring of support. We will keep you posted on his progress!
