An Upcoming Cath

Hey friends!  This will be a brief post, but I just wanted to let all my readers know that on Tuesday, March 21st, Nolan will be going in to Levine Children’s Hospital for a scheduled cardiac catheterization.  They’ll be taking a good look at his heart function, pressures, and how well his Fontan circuit is doing.  Moreover they plan to do some things to help bring up his oxygen saturations, which have been just a little on the low side post-Fontan.  We’re expecting to be there overnight, which is not unusual for Nolan.  We appreciate any prayers, kind thoughts, good vibes, etc.  I’ll post some updates here later on but if you want quicker updates, you can definitely visit Nolan’s facebook page.

  1. I stumbled upon your page today while looking for information about the Glenn Shunt procedure. Our baby girl is almost 9 months, and she wasn’t diagnosed until 4 months old, so we’re behind the 8-ball a bit. Instead of doing the Norwood procedure, the doctors opted for Pulmonary Banding at that time. She’s scheduled for her next heart cath on Tuesday, and will undergo the Glenn procedure shortly afterward. I want to thank you for writing this blog. So much of the information available is pretty textbook, and I love how real you are in recording everything Nolan has gone through. As parents, we know these procedures must be done, and we know our babies will be fine (because anything less isn’t an option), but it doesn’t take away the anxiety or heartbreak of watching the team wheel your baby away from you and knowing there’s nothing you can do to prevent the pain they’re about to experience. Reading your story has been such an incredible comfort for me, and I am so very happy to see how wonderful Nolan looks, and to see the positive outcome of his procedures. God bless you for helping others through a very scary situation, and God bless your sweet little handsome man.
