Jenn here. Just got off the phone with Becca.
Around 5:15 p.m. today Natalie was taken back into surgery because her blood pressure dropped, her heart rate skyrocked, and she began bleeding out her JP drain. Her abdomen was getting so distended that her kidneys were having a hard time. Once in surgery they found many blood clots, removed them and her kidneys started producing urine again.
The surgeon has reassured them that this is a "normal" bump in the road. Her hepatic artery still looks "beautiful" to quote Dr. Superina, but he is perplexed by this bleed. He is thinking that maybe the large amounts of heparin given to her after surgery #3 might have caused this.
Natalie came out of surgery around 7:30 p.m. and is stable. Becca and Jason are back at the Kohl's house resting.
Tomorrow we take Shelby in for testing and appointments - I can't wait to give them a hug and just let them know of all the support that is out there for them. Please continue to pray for Natalie's and Becca's recoveries.
