He had the arterial line placed in his room.
His hematocrit only went down 2 points from 71 to 69 after extracting all of that blood and replacing it with fluids.
So they did it again with the goal of getting it down to at least 65 to do the cath safely.
After the 2nd round it went down to only 66.
But after some discussion that was decided that it would be sufficient.
I just came back up to the room
Waiting to hear.
They said to expect about 3-4 hours.
And then the cardiac team will come up and share the results and the plan.
It's a big day.
we covet your prayers for him.
Happy 11th Birthday Ben!
