Cath is underway

After a short night of sleep, we woke Zoe up at 4:00 a.m. this morning to give her some milk, since she couldn't eat past 5:00 a.m. After she ate, we put her back down for a nap as we got ready for the day.

We headed over to CHOP at 7:00 a.m. Once we arrived they quickly checked us in and started preparing Zoe for the cath.

They gave her some meds to sedate her. As you can see, they worked like a charm.

After checking her vitals, giving her pre-cath meds, starting an IV, and a good luck kiss from mom they took her back to the cath lab. She is such a trooper, between her ER visit last week, her hospitalization starting the next day, her airplane trip and her cath today, she has been through so much in the last 14 days. Despite it all, she always manages to smile. She is such a trooper; we are so proud of her.

Just a few minutes ago, we received the first update, which was essentially that all wires had been placed and the substance of the cath was just getting underway.

More updates to follow.
