Parker’s heart rate is down in the 40’s again.
Of course not once did this happen the whole entire FIVE days we were in the hospital.
Because then somebody who might know what the heck is going on would have been there to witness it.
I did talk to Parker’s cardiologist. He wants us to count his heart beats when this happens to make sure the pulse ox is working properly.
We’re keeping a log documenting these dips. Seeing if perhaps they correlate with anything. Like the fact that Paker had no bowel movements today.
Tomorrow we start the liquid senna. Our life is an open book, no?
I could title this book, “The Poop Chronicles” It could make a whole lotta money and our financial worries would be over.
Or, you know. Maybe not.
Sometimes a very low heart rate can be a sign that one’s pulmonary hypertension levels are getting worse. Previously Parker’s heart rate has always been too high. It would be unusual for this low heart rate to be symptomatic of his ph getting worse.
But then again, not that unusual.
Did you know that a low a child can arrest due to a too low heart beat?
Yeah. The fun never ends around here.
Just think how rich we would be if we could bottle up all this stress and sell it.
