This morning at the rounds they decided to take her off the heart medication that is helping her heart pump. How her lactate levels react to coming off this will potentially play a big role as to where we head next. She went off the med at 11am. Unfortunately, the latest lactate value (at 2pmish) was quite a bit higher than the lactate value at 11am. At the moment we are playing a wait and see game. They will draw more blood at 3pm and hopefully her lactate levels will be heading in the right direction.
