To introduce Roscoe to new nurses, UCSF had Alisha fill out the sheet shown below. It's funny to try and summarize Roscoe onto a single sheet of paper, there is so much more to this boy!
He had a little step backwards last night and then during the first half of today. Some of his instability reared its head and he had to be manually ventilated ("bagged") and his saturations went as low as the 30's. After a conversation with the doctors it sounds like this may be Roscoe's new "normal" until the hypertension is resolved. They said that commonly once this downward spiral starts with pulmonary hypertension it continues to get worse. As a result, they said that after the catheterization early next week they may perform the surgery much sooner if he shows any improvement. Yesterday we thought they'd wait until ~3 weeks after his catheterization to perform surgery, but now it looks like it could be as short as 1 week later. It's a race against time and right now it looks like a photo finish.
