Update

The cath lab just called me. He's doing fine. They are trying nitric and other meds right now to find the right one for his pulmonary hypertension. They think they are going to try and balloon open his SVC. I guess the pressure is pretty high above it.
I don't know if they are going to tap his effusion or not. He hasn't decided yet. I also don't know where he'll go. We are waiting in his room until we get word that he's coming back here or going to PICU.

Last night getting ready for bed

Going into the cath lab.
On the table, before mommy had to leave him.
