While in the NICU she was placed on a venilator. She was taken off it on Sunday March 24th and I got to hold her for the very first time since March 21st. On Friday March 30th, Dr. Mills, Pediatric Cardiologist, preformed her first open heart surgery call the Norwood Procedure. He was so impressed with how her body handled the surgery, he went ahead and closed her chest. Later that night Shelby's heart began to swell, her blood preassure dropped, and her heart raced so he was called back in to re-open her chest.The angels watched over her that night. On Monday April 9th, she was moved out of the Pediatric ICU to the Childrens Intermediate Cardiac Care Unit. On Friday March 13th, we noticed that Shelby was turning yellow. It took 2 days of me complaing for them to test her billy rubin (sp?). On Tuesday the 17th, she was diagnosed with another rare condition called a choleductal cyst. It is a cyst between her liver and gallbladder. She also had an obstruction inthe bile duct right before it emptied into her intestines. A drainage tube was placed to drain the bile out of her body. She will have surgery to remove her gallbladder and the cyst on June 21st, 2007. The doctors didn't want to chance another surgery so close to her last heart surgery. On Wednesday March 25th, I got to feed Shelby for the first time ever with a bottle. Finally, on Wednesday March 2nd Shelby was discharged and got to come home for her very first time ever.
