Treatment Day Comes At Last

Though Shad was up by 7:15 this morning, he was scheduled for the second catheterization of the day, meaning that we had some time to play in the playroom. He spent a lot of time on the computer playing video games and working together crafts with his mother. At around 11:00, he was called in to have his catheterization. Though his mother didn't want to let go of him, we all had to wait outside in the waiting area. The catheterization took about five hours which was longer than expected, however Shad eventually emerged.

Doctors say all is well and we believe the hole in his heart is successfully closed. He is coughing and his throat is raspy, but that is normal for patients that have been intubated (or had an artificial breather down their throats).

They brought him back to his room and settled him in for the rest of the day. He was still asleep when we left. Thank you for your prayers.
