Moving forward with Owain's next surgery

I think I feel OK about this. I knew it was coming so I have been trying to prepare myself. Of course I am sad, I am worried, I am scared, but I am OK with it. It has to be done. At least I am TRYING to be OK with this.

We had an appointment with his cardiologist the other day and they think his O2 sats are low enough and he is big enough to start moving forward.

Friday they are going to be doing the catheter procedure. They will go in through an artery, probably in his neck and look around at his heart to see how much his arteries have grown and basically see how his heart is doing over all.

I thought that they were going to schedule his surgery based on what they found during the cath procedure, but they called this morning and we have the surgery scheduled for September 3rd.

I don't know the exact times that everything is scheduled, they sent out a package by FedEx that I should get tomorrow with all the times and everything else I need to know. I do know that they would like to get him in first thing on Friday morning for the cath procedure so that he can recover from the anesthesia and then come home Friday afternoon or evening. He will be in the hospital for about a week after the open heart surgery in September.

I know I have been a big slacker with the pictures, so I have a little bit of every one here for ya.
