As I mentioned in my earlier post today, Annabelle is having some extra heartbeats. We were just told that she has had at least 10 more episodes throughout the day today each consisting of about 7 extra heartbeats. They have increased her propanolol (the meds for the arrythmias) to give her an extra dose (from 4 to 5 doses a day). We were also told that if they don't stop/slow down or the medicine doesn't seem to be working within the next few hours then we will be sent back down to PCICU for closer monitoring. The attending PC felt that it would be best for her to be back there if these continue. We don't know what is causing them but know that God answers prayer. She wouldn't be here today without Him hearing and answering us. Please pray specifically for her heart to stop having these extra heartbeats so that she can continue healing.
