WE MADE IT TO THE CATH LAB!!!!

We officially made it into the cath lab around 7:30. She woke up with a little cough this morning, but they feel that she sounds and looks pretty good. Kaidence was a little unsure of things, but she insisted on walking herself into the Cath lab and went and stood right next to the table. Everybody seemed surprised at how big she had gotten. She chose bubble gum for her flavor of sleepy juice, but was a little unsure as to why she didn't get a 'real' piece of gum. They let me stay in the room with her as they put her to sleep. I was able to help hold her and just talk with her as she drifted off to sleep. She only cried for a minute before she was snoring away.

They told us to expect 3 hours because they were doing a full cath on her. I don't ever recall her having a full cath since her initial 6 month post transplant. They will use both legs as access to a artery and a vein. They will take the biopsies and then inject dye into the coronary arteries to look for disease and narrowing. I am a little worried as to how the coronaries will look due to the fact that last cath she came back showing AMR antibodies. They seem to think that being positive for the AMR antibodies leads to a higher chance of disease of the arteries. Time will tell and I am trying to not worry over things I cannot control. Please keep my little lady in your prayers today. I will update again as soon as I get any info.
