Last night I was able to be in the room when they did the doppler readings and skin color test. The nurse was having trouble finding a strong beat and the blanch test was weak. Having returned this morning I was a bit concerned with same tests as there was really no improvement. When I was there with kids after church Shell had mentioned that Dr. Souf had been in to see her. After talking to the charge nurse she informed me that Dr. Souf is concerned with color and the lack of blood flow. We have to be prepeared for the possibility that the reconstruction didn't work and that he would have to remove the flaps. What the alternatives are and where we go from there, I am not sure but will meet with him tomorrow to find out.
Shell is very tired as they have been waking here up every hour to do tests. They have changed it to once every 6 hours since Dr Souf has been there. They did get her to sit up for 45 minutes but she had trouble focusing due to fatigue and the pain medication. She is resting right now as she was very tired after sitting up.
We continue to pray and hope that we get better news tomorrow.
Life does not seem fair at times but such is life. It is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
The journey has started and it will be a battle but nothing Shell can't conquor as I have never met someone so tough,determined and optomistic.
