It’s a little after 5pm and the procedure is happening now. I left Rudy in the Cath lab sedated waiting for Dr. Dan who was addressing an emergency in the CTICU. Turns out the emergency is in the room next door to Rudy’s so when I got back to Rudy’s room I was able to wish Dr. Dan well as he headed down to Rudy…a few minutes later he was back up tending to the little baby girl next door (please say a quick prayer for this precious little one who has the same condition as Rudy) but he is now back down with Rudy again so things should be underway.
If Dr. Dan does only one catheter, the procedure should take about 90 minutes. If he sees something in the first go around that warrants a second catheter, then the procedure could take 3+ hours. So, I’ll post again later tonight when Rudy is back safe and sound.
