We just got back from the hospital. Nate was a different boy after waking up from his sedation and finally getting some food in him. An hour into his ultrasound, he actually woke up, and they still hadn't taken all the pictures they wanted to. Complex heart = lots of pictures required for the study. Don held him and we gave him some milk, so they took a few more pics while he held Nate.
I wasn't aware of this, but surgeons and cardiologists from several different centres (including Nate's - Dr. Soni) actually do another video conference this afternoon, before surgery tomorrow.
We have a late surgery time, 2:40pm, Dr. Rebeyka's second of the day. It means another day of fasting, but understandable since surgeries that require use of the bypass machine are always the first of the day, and it sounded like his first was a lengthy and complex case.
They expect Nate's OR time to be 3 hours, which includes the time it takes to get the lines in once he is under general.
More later, glad this part of the day is done!
