Heart cath ordered....

OK....what a morning. Dr Marx talked to Dr Del nido this morning and they have ordered a heart cath. This is a procedure that is done through the groin, the same procedure we had done before we had our surgery. They are concerned that we might have some more vessels that need to be coiled off. This will also give them lung pressures, heart condition,,,lots of information that is needed to know where to go next. They are very confident that the coils are what are needed but wont know until they get in there. Dont know if that will be today or not but sometime very soon.

Tuckers belly is extended once again. He pooped yesterday but have put the regime back on to get everything out once again. The pee has slowed as well, we were positive again yesterday. Xray looks wet again this morning. We still dont know what the infection is that is culturing from the lungs.

Remember that Our God Is in control, what ever is going on He knows and also Knows why. We just have to TRUST HIM. I am praying and I have put Tucker on other Prayer chains at other churches here where I have friends. I know this is so hard but just Know that we love you all and are praying for all of you.
Love, Mary Ellen
