Well the outcome was not what we wanted. When the tube came out she could not fully breath. They had to put a mask over her face that is connected to a pump that is compressed manually. Her airway would not open. Her finger nails turned purple as well as her cheeks but they kept air going to her. An anesthesiologist was called in and he inserted the new breathing tube with ease. We are happy that the doctor called the specialist so the tube could be placed in the first try and not the third like the other day. Less trauma on Kathryn’s body. So this puts us on a couple of days of rest and just watching for sure. They may try again in 2 or 3 days. They really aren’t sure why she wasn’t able to breathe. It could be more complicated. It could be that she doesn’t have the ability to clear her airway or there was just too much junk in the airway and she couldn’t get it all out. We don’t know.
Otherwise her counts are good with the exception of the platelets. Platelets are an easy fix.
