Tests went well
Ben disliked his chest x-ray, but it was pretty fast and painless. Then they sedated him, but we decided it was best not to fully sedate him. We actually would have liked to not give him anything, but his personality makes him need something or we would have not gotten good results. So we gave him a nasal drug that made him chill out rather than being knocked out. His Eco and and EKG looked great. No serious problems. If his cath pressures look good tomorrow, they plan to schedule his Fontan surgery this summer. We will need to fast again tomorrow. The cath will be different than his last one. They will go in at two points. On his groin and under his collarbone. The cath goes right in his heart and there are risks. They may need to put some coils in, if they find there is some vessels that have formed. Wish Ben luck tomorrow and have a good one.
