Boo pacemaker

We had a rough morning and afternoon. After getting poked for labs, around 5:30, her heart rate spiked to 180 and they pulled in EKG and the pacemaker people (electrophysiologists). They're calling it pacemaker mediated tachycardia. She had an IV blow last night that got pulled to make way for having another put in. They're talking about a PICC line because she's such a hard stick. 

This pacemaker business is frustrating stuff.  We have had 3 adjustments today alone. One of the chest tubes was scheduled to be pulled this afternoon, but it started draining again so we're holding off.  I keep reminding myself that she just had surgery and we are PREPARED to be at the hospital as long as it takes.  I think I got a little ahead of myself but being here humbles me. And makes me even more thankful for that beautiful girl.
