It’s 11pm on Sunday night, and Caitlin has had to go back to the OR. Clotting is a risk with the ECMO cannulas through which her blood flows. The system is monitored constantly and a couple of hours ago, they discovered a clot. They clamped off part of the tubing to try and extract it, but that didn’t work so she’s had to go back into the OR to replace the cannulas. They are not meant to work forever.
It’s Sunday night and we’re coming into Mercury Retrograde and I’m asking anyone who is awake and reading this to pray for a hitch-free procedure.This kid has been through enough!
