He's in the cath lab

Drew's in the cath lab right now. He was a little trooper this morning, although a little whiny. He didn't want to come to the hospital and he kept asking for a snack. Once we got into our room he did ok with the medical bracelet, leads, thermometer, blood pressure, etc. He didn't want to take his medicine and it tasted yucky. He watched his dinosaur movie on the laptop and got really sleepy from the versed. Then we went to the cath lab.

Things didn't go as well up there. They couldn't get the IV in and we had to listen to him screaming from the hallway as they tried three times. That woke him up so he needed more sedative. They are going to have to start the IV in his groin where they are threading the catheter and then give him the IV sedative. Poor little guy. It was breaking my heart.

But he's in there now and we have the pager. They will page us when they are through, it will probably take about 3 hours. We are going to go get some breakfast and coffee. We'll update when we know more.
