Katia began to have a few seizures in the night. She had a fever, a reaction to the morphine, and was extremely dry. After her NG tube was removed, she began having more and more seizures until they were almost without stopping again.
After receiving various treatments and rescue medication for the seizures, she slept and is sleeping now. Her surgeon explained that vagus nerves run along the esophagus and these were very messed with yesterday and can cause the autonomic problems that she had today. It could also be from being overwhelmed by the stress of surgery, pain and medications. But he is pleased by her progress and is optomistic for her continued progress.
She has managed to keep all of the staff on their toes today as well as her parents who are grateful to be at this place.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV)
