The echocardiogram came back today showing baby girls heart working harder. Yesterday, there were some med adjustments for an increase in potassium. Today the potassium is down. This alone maybe the reason for the increased heart rate. The plan is to add another medication for her heart. This child is a pharmacy! With at least 8 medications being given over the course of a day with some repeated every 4 hours. Today she is restless. Fortunately she calms easily. She needs to rest, that 1/4 of a pound she gained yesterday needs to stay on her.
