Looks like you might say our luck has run out!

Today was Katy’s cath/MRI/ & Biopsy. First I want to preface this post with its 12:30 at night, I have taken my ambien and can not be held responsible for misspellings , ramblings etc, etc, I wasn’t going to even blog. I thought that I owed it to some of you to at least give you a quick run down.

Kate went in for her MRI @930 by 11 she was headed to the cath lab. She was out of the cath lab by 130. During the Cath lab they found that the pressures in her left heart were very high…not good. Her blood count was low as well, so they gave her a blood transfusion.

At this point we met with our cardiologist Dr. Marx and it was decided to that it was time to expand Katy’s team and refer her to the Heart Failure/Transplant Team. We met with Dr. Blume and both Mike and I immediately liked her.

At this point Kate was admitted and its looking like she will be here until Friday, a decision should be made by then on when and how she will be listed.

Today was a long difficult day! I just want my baby back to her happy, funny, smiley self!

I am looking to have some of the Lance Armstrong type wrist bands made up…pink and green with Katy is a Rock star. Any recommendations on where I can get them at a reasonable price?

Please pray for our princess!!!!

Let me know when the bracelets are made, I will totally wear one for Katy. What is she getting through iv? Is it a PICC line, they sound scary, but they are so nice. I will be praying for both Katy, you, and the rest of the support team. Let me know if you have ANY questions, I have just been through all of this and might be able to give you some insight.
