Ella slept well last night. However when the cat woke me up at 3:30am, I was not able to go back to sleep. So I decided to peek on Ella and check out her numbers. Unfortunately, they did not look great. She was saturating 98 with a heart rate around 135ish. When she is in a good place, it is 30 beats lower per minute. So, it was clear that her heart was working harder. And although she was saturating fine, many times in the past her heart rate would be at 100 for a solid stretch of time. Therefore, we opted to give her a dose of Bumex to allow her to urinate off any excess fluid.

We’ve been noticing a trend where she requires a dose or two of Bumex to get things back to a stable point. Sometimes, it has required 2 doses of Bumex. We’re hopeful that one dose will do the trick.

I have much more to share, but I’m literally falling asleep as he I type this out. It’s been a long day!

Thanks for all your love, support and prayers.
