Heart Cath

by Dave

Eli had a heart catheter procedure yesterday at Children’s Minneapolis. They put a catheter in his groin area and snaked it up into his heart. The purpose was to take various measurements in preparation for his next surgery.

He did very well and came home last night around six. The hardest part was the fact that he couldn’t eat, starting at 5:30 am, until the procedure was done. He woke up from the anesthesia shortly after one and had his first food in almost eight hours. Poor little guy.
