Also, she has a yeast found from blood cultures from her arterial line. This is not good either. The fungi usually form a film that loves to stick to plastic and the only way to get rid of it on an IV or any other line is to replace the line. She has four lines and they were all very difficult to place and did damage her skin in the process. She can't have them all replaced. The antifungals are hard on the kidneys which are already failing.
But despite all of the worry this is causing us, we are constantly reminded that she actually appears good and does not act like the new liver and infection issues are making her sicker. Her wounds in fact, are looking pretty good and she had no more bleeding today.
On the lighter side, after all day concerns with Elle and being in the hospital all day, we got free tickets to the Minnesota Wild hockey game from RMH. FUN. I am not much of a sports fan generally, but I guess I really love hockey... and they won. I couldn't stay for the whole game though as I didn't want to leave Elle long. She is resting well currently.
