During the cath they went and looked at all her coronary arteries, vessels, etc. We know that she has some interesting semi-uncommon factor in her blood that allowed her to make these crazy Medusa like collaterals off the heart that don't go anywhere. It's not hurting anything and it's not an indication of what her future holds; just something interesting. Gee, glad she wants to be atypical there too (mom says tongue in cheek). They originally tried to do the procedure through her right leg only to discover that Liv's right femoral vein is occluded. This isn't uncommon particularly in kiddos that had central lines in their legs as infants like Olivia did post-Norwood. Unusual is that the blockage is much higher up towards the abdomen vs within the leg itself. Meh, every scar on that precious body tells a story of who she is, where she's been and where she's going to go in life.
Halloween is approximately 48 hours away and she MAY be set on a costume. I only say may, because I'm still hearing about Doc McStuffins, Cinderella, Minnie Mouse but now also Snow White. If she wore orange and black with this cute little witch headband she has, I'd consider that a victory. Not to mention she needs to be feeling better, weather needs to cooperate, etc etc.
Follow up care now is clinic in three months and another biopsy in six which should be less invasive and through the neck again. Happy Halloween!
