CT Scan Underway

Karsie is getting her first test done now. The goal is to not have to intubate her, but they are giving her just enough medicine to put her asleep, so if she doesn't handle it they will have to intubate. The pictures will be ready within minutes, but when they get read is anyone's guess.

The next test may come later if the CT is inconclusive. That would be an upper GI where they put barium in her bowels and watch the flow.

Finally, they are going to put a central line in after the CT scan. If they can get a PICC line in they will do that, but if not they will call the PICU and have them do one.

More updates later...
