Slacker.

Well, I caught some slack for not updating on Olivia yesterday, but I figure today I will be able to make up for it. She had a really good day yesterday. There really haven't been any changes. Since she is going down to cath lab this morning, it's kind of pointless to try to wean things down. She's been stocking up on platelets. They were the magic number of 13,000 again yesterday, but today they are all the way up to 23,000. She did get some blood on Wednesday night, which seemed to make a big difference in her numbers.
When she goes down to the cath lab, they are going to try to just use a paralytic and sedation. If that doesn't hold her, they will go ahead and use anesthesia. The goal is to get lots of measurements while they are in there, so it should take about 2 hours or so. I'll be sure to update if anything worthwhile happens during the procedure, but let's just pray that it doesn't!

We are praying that the cath lab gives the answers that you need and that all goes well.

I was going to call you yesterday just to check but then the semi came & I didn't think about anything other than the copious amounts of crap we have to fit into our new house until too late to call. How's that for a run-on sentence?

Hope all goes well today!
