In Recovery


Got back with Rudy after 7 hours here in PACU. Heard from two tired but excited docs about all they did (43 angiograms for you heart nerds) More detail later but two stents to open the Sano shunt (which had narrowed to 1mm) to 4-5mm. Then a huge collateral coiling fest. Lungs look strong both in terms of oxygenation and pressures. Not a Glenn candidate yet but good progress.

The warrior is slowly waking up. Not smiling yet, but not super-cranky. Due to all the work they did, they want him supine until 9pm.

Thanks for the prayers and messages.

    So happy to hear the good report πŸ™‚ Praying for a quick and joyful recovery for him and some nice, peaceful rest for you guys!

    Well, it’s 1:17 am on the west coast – wondering how the little warrior, Rudy, is doing thus far since there has been no further update since around 4 pm on Wednesday. I am a natural worrier, so I am a wee bit worried – as the saying goes, no news is good news. I’m sure all is well and you are just enjoying some much needed rest, as is Rudy too in his recovery process. Looking forward to the next update – perhaps in the morning. Until then, sleep tight and rest well. You are all in my prayers and thoughts….

    Thanks for your call last evening, Trish. Rudy’s crying in the background was his message–“This is not fun and games!!!!”
    So glad Bob and Cathy were with you (Thanks, Drummond’s).
    Wish I could envelope all of you in a greatful hug. Talked to Max and Helga after talking with you–all is well on the home front.
    PTL, mama jo

  21. Jen and Joe Says:
