Cath Update 3
Emma is out of the cath procedure. It went very well. She behaved herself during the procedures that went on while she was in the cath lab. She had the old abdominal ascites drain pulled and a new one placed. They were going to attempt to do a dual lumen picc placement but opted to not do that after talking with all the teams. After placing the abdominal drain in, they proceeded to the cath. Her cath results were good. Everything, number wise, looked pretty good. The only thing they did was coil collaterals. This is a HUGE blessing! Currently she is in recovery where they are just making sure they don't need to do anything to her prior to going back up to the floor for the night. Her O2 sats are a little low and heart rate a little higher which is to be expected due to her coiling of collaterals and low hemoglobin. So, as of right now, we are still on for the Glenn procedure tomorrow morning. We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers! Prayers for no fevers, low pain, and an uneventful night full of rest. We will give a more I depth update this evening. God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good!
