Julie went on the heart/lung bypass machine. Her good lung was initially able to support her body, but eventually her CO2 levels began to creep up. They did something to bring them back down, but once they started to come back up the said it was clear they needed to bypass her. Having high CO2 levels can give her brain damage among other things so this in some ways is a good thing. As I was on the phone with them they were extracting the second lung. They came out well which is good for a cystic since all the lung tissue is infected. Another update in about two hours...
