We got to CHOP at 8 am. Abby was a little hungry, having not eaten since 10 pm last night, but overall in good spirits. Unfortunately, we had to wait a long time once we arrived. There was only one case ahead of Abby on the schedule, but it took them much longer than expected. As a result, she just went into the cath at 2 pm, and is expected to stay overnight for observation.
This morning Abby got an IV put in, blood work drawn, an EKG, chest x-ray, and a non-sedated echo. She certainly didn't like being held down so much, but was her usual content self again after she caught a nap.
We expect the cath to take 2-3 hours and are in the waiting room now waiting for an update from the nurse.
Anna is at home with Grandma and Pop-Pop and having a blast! I'll post an update once she is back from the cath. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. Abby need them!
