Dr Del nido came by. The issue we are having with Tuck is the pressure on the left side of his heart is running in the high 20-30's. With the left side of his heart not being used to all the blood flow this is normal, however it should be coming down. As long as they keep him comfortable, heavily sedated, his pressures stay in the 20's. The higher pressure causes fluid, which backs up into the lungs. Ideally we want that pressure in the teens. What they will do is continue to keep him very comfortable and attempt to get rid of the fluid from the surgery, via pee. As his fluids come down that pressure will also come down. They will attempt to wake him, however if the pressure in the left side goes back up, they will sedate him again and give him more time to recover. This will be the balance we will keep attempting. He also said on Monday or Tuesday he would re due an echo cardiogram to look at his heart. Make sure that left side is not oversize, that the valves are not leaking and that it is working correctly. Right now he sees no need as everything is in line...again as long as they keep him sedated, if he starts to wake it all goes haywire. The right side, which was doing all the work before the surgery, has pressures that are great...right where they need to be. Again, this is all things they have seen with this type of surgery, they assure me, so it is finding the right mix for Tuckman, getting fluid off his body, and letting him rest and adjust.
