Transplant Annual

Keegan's annual went well today.  His heart looks great so far.

We started the day off with an echo, an EKG, and labs.  Keegan made it to pre-op for his cath and biopsy around 11am.

That is one black eye!  

His heart pressures and coronaries were stable from last year.  He came out of surgery around 12:15pm.  Then the hard part of the day started - four hours of lying flat on his back and still.  The doctor goes in through the femoral artery in his groin in order to do the arterial angiogram.  Because of the pressure there, you have to give the artery time to clot off before you sit up.  Fun times.

Anyway, we are on our way home and to pick up Audrey right now!  Biopsy results should be back tomorrow, but we are anticipating no rejection.  Thank you for your prayers today.  Keep them up for one more night for that big 0R biopsy result!

Sounds like it was a good day. Praying the remaining results are just as good.

At eye looks like it hurts a lot.
