Good morning. My have we been worrying. Ava, Ava, Ava. She always has us scratching our heads. Last night all her stats were normal except her heart rate. It was super low. It would get down to 73! Huh? It was hanging around in the 90's at about 4pm-6pm and then it dropped and kept dropping. You know our concern because Ava has always had a high heart rate. Her normal when sleeping is 115- 155. Her awake heart rate is anywhere from 130-180. So naturally yesterday when it started to decrease I got concerned. The thing about Ava is she ALWAYS keep s us and the doctors thinking. There is never a second, it seems, when we can just rest and know that she is going to be "fine."
The doctors thought this was actually a good sign for her. I meant that finally she was comfortable and resting. She had a really good night. So we'll see what today brings. The funny thing is she is on nothing to make her heart slow down. The only thing she is on for pain is the epideral and that (they tell me) has no side effects that would slow the heart.
I'll keep you updated. The girls are going to be coming up this afternoon. Ava is going to LOVE that. Lexis has a cold but she will have to wear a mask and just sit down. Emeline is not sick so she should be fine.
Thanks again for all the support.
