#TeamMissy Post transplant surgery update **
Melissa Smith is still medically sedated and has not been woken from surgery yet. They will most likely wait another day, or two, before they begin to wake her so she can sleep and heal.
Missy started developing a slight fever a couple hours ago, and it is now up to 101. The lower temp wasn't a worry, but as it has gone up, they started to run tests. Her blood work revealed a bacterial infection in her lungs. She is already on IV antibiotics ( which is the normal procedure for post transplant ). They are keeping an eye on the culture to determine what kind of bacteria it is.
Please keep those prayers coming in and that the team of amazing doctors can figure out what the issue is and resolve it smoothly.
UPDATE 620PM. Just got word from Rochelle Blankenship that Missys temp is going down! Her liver looks great, and we are back on track! Thank you, Lord! Our girl is TOUGH and her body is working hard at healing!!!
