Cath Update #2

The lab called to speak with me and give a live update.  All of Olivia's vitals look great, she went to sleep well and was intubated without trouble.  They were able to go in successfully through her arm but as it turns out that was for naught as they need to put a stent in through the LPA.  Shucky darns!  What this means is that even though they got in through the arm, they will have to also go in through the neck to place the stent in the LPA.

There was no mention of coiling or ballooning yet, but that doesn't mean anything at this point.  It's definitely an overnight stay now for monitoring and administering preventative antibiotics.  Looks like it'll be another hour or two potentially before she's out in recovery.
