Latest lactate reading

Unfortunately Brea's lactate readings have been increasing since going off the drug.  This is continuing to puzzle the doctors as everything else is suggesting good blood flow.  The current plan (currently in progress) is to hit her with fluids to try and determine whether Brea is just dehydrated, or whether her heart isn't pumping as well and she needs to go back on heart medication.  They will take the reading at 5pm.  I think everyone is hoping that the fluids will reduce the lactate levels.

Either way it looks like (i) the lines in Brea's groin will still be in for a while, and (ii) we will be in the ICU for at least another night.
