Lauren's in again: a post from Brad
I just wanted to let you know that Lauren ended up in the hospital again. We were actually in the process of transplant evaluation (for double-lung), and during our meeting with one of the nurse coordinators of the transplant program Lauren de-saturated pretty badly; we stopped the meeting and rushed her downstairs to the ER.
That was a really scary day. She's doing a lot better now, but she's still in the Critical Care Unit. Also, we're in a different hospital than usual since our meeting with the transplant team was in a different place than the CF clinic.
Her oxygen saturation is doing well (with 7 LPM through an oxymizer), though it was also discovered that she has pneumonia in her right lung. They've also suspended the transplant evaluation until she's feeling better.
