Today 5/4/16 we were back at LPCH for the radioactive isotope injection in preparation for her MIBG scan tomorrow. She also has an MRI tomorrow as well. She had a bit of a reaction to the injection which scared us but it was very temporary.
After the injection she got a blood transfusion because her hemoglobin had dropped to 7.1, and since she has anesthesia tomorrow she needed more blood (7 is the minimum).
Reba also had a dressing change today. Unfortunately during the change the stitches came out (that were holding the line in place) and so the nurse had to put a stat-lock on to secure the line. It is right where her arm bends so she is uncomfortable. We are hoping that tomorrow while she is under anesthesia the PICC team can stitch it back in.
