The call came in - that long distance 3-ring tone. For the past two weeks, I rushed to the phone thinking it's CHOP calling to schedule Zoe's MRI and Cath. After several false alarms, today I received the call.
And so it is. Zoe's MRI ("and cath, if necessary") are scheduled for July 8th with pre-testing on July 7th. Poor Zoes will have a full work-up: a check up with cardiology, an echo, ekg, chest x-rays and blood work. I'm already dreading the blood work! Zoe, like most heart kids, is not cooperative and her blood is thicker than heart healthy children - so blood draws are never easy.
The plan remains the same. If the MRI is reassuring and shows that her pulmonary arteries are decent-sized (prayers, please) then Zoe will not need a cath and we'll have a weekend of FUN in Philly. If she needs a cath and ballooning/stenting of her pulmonary artery(ies), Zoe will have an overnight stay at CHOP with discharge the following day - assuming no complications arise.
So now, we wait. As usual.
Over the next several weeks, leading up to July 8th, please keep Zoe in your thoughts and prayers for nothing but a positive outcome.
P.S. A Disney and Birthday blog soon to come...
