We think that Ryan’s blood was so thin (7.2 – ideal for stroke patients on cumadin is between 2 and 3) that it seeped through the layer around the heart. They just removed a liter and a half of bloody fluid and he’s already looking much less pale. They will keep a drain in overnight to see if it continues to fill. They are optimistic that it won’t now that his blood isn’t too thin now.
We’ll know more in the morning. Leaving Ryan to take baby home will be rough.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We are blessed.
