Casey is home, after only sixteen hours in the hospital.   He is watching Monday night football and eating a mountain of pasta and meatballs.   Thank goodness no overnight stay at the hospital!

He did not actually have the surgery we had planned for today, and  that was a possibility we were prepared for.   Without getting too detailed, when the cardiologist inserted the catheter into Casey’s heart, they were unable to pinpoint  the exact problem spot  they were looking for.       We will be following up with the cardiologist as he works to find an alternative diagnosis.   So all in all, we have ruled out what it’s not, and are still searching to find what it is.   He was in surgery for two and a half hours all told, and ended up being quite heavily sedated, which we were not expecting.     It was mildly entertaining, though, talking to him afterwards…

Thanks to all who sent emails and well-wishes.   I felt your prayers during those long hours in the waiting room.

    Glad he was able to come back home tonight. Hospital beds are no fun!
