Dr. del Nido just stopped by to check on Sophia. What a sweetheart. Her conduction system is still in heart block. The pacemaker is set to take her atrial signal and to transfer it to the ventricle. If she wants to go higher, it will let her. And if she wants to go lower, it will let her, too. She is calling the shots.
He confirmed that they didn't see anything in the echo that would be cause for concern and the fact that she was able to conduct on her own for almost 24 hours, is a good sign. Time will tell. In the meantime, we will remain in the ICU.
But he also told us that it's time to take the drainage tubes out. YEA! She will feel so much better without them. And then they will have her sit up and move around a little bit. Perhaps have some food? We shall see. Baby steps.
