Catheter Done

The catheter is finished and in about 20 minutes they will wake her up. The conclusion right now is complicated and unclear. For those with a medical background: her pulmonary arteries are very small. The pressure levels came out okay, but they need to check the numbers to make sure it is an accurate depiction and not influenced by the small pulmonary arteries. They are going to study the numbers and if they are good, they will consult with Dr. Erez, to see if he is comfortable going ahead with the Glenn. 

If the numbers show that the pressure isn't good, or Dr. Erez feels the pulmonary arteries are too small, we will have to wait for surgery, until she grows and her arteries grow, as well. If that is the case, because she clearly isn't doing well, there are measures (we don't know what they are yet) they will take to help in the interim. 

We have to wait 4-5 hours for the team to meet and make some decisions. Please please pray that the pressure is fine and Dr. Erez feels her pulmonary arteries are a good enough size, so we can progress to surgery. 


  1. She will be in my prayers.
