While we there waiting, the sedation department for most CT's, MRI's etc... (they sedate w/ sleepy meds through an IV) also had Mason scheduled to be sedated by them. So they told the cardiac anesthesiologist who had been assigned to Mason's case that there must have been a confusion and he didn't need to do it.
Mean while at 12:30 Mason and I continued to wait for our anesthesiologist up in "same day", he went home, because supposedly he was done with his cases for his 24 hour shift!
Finally after checking with the nurses at least 3 times about why we were waiting so long..... as poor Mason got hungrier and hungrier (he stopped getting any kind of food/formula at 5am!), a nurse tech took us down to the "Imaging check in". They sent us to sedation, whom I told he was supposed to have general anesthesia ......yikes! At this point I discovered what was going on and was very frustrated! It was now 1pm!!!
After Sedation checked w/ Dr. E , they realized I was right and had to call the anesthesiologist back to the hospital, because all the other cardiac anesthesiologist were busy! NIGHTMARE!!!
By 230-245 he was finally sedated and getting his chest CT w/ angiogram! Which only took 5 minutes. ALL that for a 5 min. sedation ??!!
After recovering from his sedation we checked w/ Dr. E and the CT report wasn't finished yet..so we decided to head home in an effort to beat traffic!
All the radiologist told me was "it went well and we were able to get all the images needed". That didn't give many any of the info I wanted! But at least that means we won't need to do it over again.
I expected a call from Michelle, Dr. Everett's nurse practitioner, last night. But to top off our long day, I received no phone call! Hopefully NO NEWS means NO BAD NEWS!
Thank you for all the text messages, blog comments, and e-mails letting me know we were in your thought and prayers especially for this test yesterday!
I've got to go get Mason who's now crying....he has a brand new cough and runny nose! Darn it....it looks like he's going on round 2! He coughed and cried most of the night. It was a very sleepless night, but I will not complain because I had undivided time with my Miracle Mason. For I still worry and cry often about the unknown..... how long do I have with him here on earth?!
I will post with a report of CT when I get one.
Have a great weekend!
Loves to you from Mason!
