He's done

He's all done. They were able to balloon open the SVC. Not completely open, but it brought the pressure above down by half. The bad part is we don't know if this will help or not. His upper body is such a mess of blocked veins that it could be other ones helping with this problem.
He is still intubated, and they just told me that they aren't even going to attempt to extubate him until ENT comes up and looks at him.
I will post some more pics tonight. He's doing ok, thanks to everyone's prayers.
