No Catheter Test After All

Hello to all!

I took Mason to PCMC yesterday for his heart catheter test which they like to do before they set a date for the second surgery. Although, his clot that he has in his superior vena ceva at the top of his right atrium posed a high risk to perfom the catheterization, in fear of possibly hitting the clot and breaking it loose, the Dr. chose not to do it. We are very glad he decided to do a sedated and very detailed echo prior to the catheter to get a better look at his clot that Mason has had since Jan. Instead they did a CT scan to get close images of his arteries etc. All looked good, so they saw no pressing need to perform surgery before probably another month. We are glad Mason was once again protected by his "guardian angles" and our Father in heaven when the Dr. made his decision yesterday! PLease pray our little MAson can put some good weight on this month to stregthen him for surgery. We will set a date for surgery when we go to clinic next Monday.

We love you,
