If it's not one thing....

They said one of the risks with being on all of this heparin & having a very prolonged clotting time, is having bleeding issues. When they suctioned his mouth today like they always do, they had some bleeding. A little is usual, medium is worth watching and large amounts they have to try new strategies. Right now we are at medium. Not great & one more thing to watch but it's not terrible yet, since he gets new blood in the ECMO circuit every day. It goes with the territory, but not exactly nice for mom to see. It is not a big issue yet, just another hurdle. Prayers for clots that stay intact. Thank you
