Heart Cath #4... Here We Go!

We arrived in Charleston for Chase's 4th heart catheterization last night and had a relatively restful night, all things considered. Daddy thought 20 oz. of Gatorade at 9 PM would be a good way to get him hydrated the night before the procedure. He was literally running circles in the kitchen like a madman at 10 PM. It was insane! And hilarious!!

We arrived at MUSC Children's Hospital this morning just after 6 AM. He walked in like he owned the place! Haha!

Chase has been in good spirits all morning, but he has had a moment or two where he told me he was scared. I reminded him how many people love him and are praying for him. He's been such a trooper!

We got through registration and went through the work up in the Same Day area. He was a little agitated but did a great job overall.

He didn't love the idea of taking his "happy medicine" (Versed), but not long after we were able to get that in him, he turned into a hilariously happy camper!

Around 7:45 AM, they came by to wheel him down to the Cath Lab. It's always bittersweet watching him leave our care and head into a procedure or surgery, but we know he's in good hands.

Thank you for your prayers today during Chase's procedure! We will keep you updated as we get our hourly phone calls from the nurse.
