Cath details.

Hey friends.  It's almost 9:00 p.m. on the night before we head to Duke.  The productive day of packing I had in mind when I woke up this morning didn't even come close to happening, so I'm going to make this short and sweet.

We are scheduled to check-in at 9:00 tomorrow morning, and hopefully Ethan will head into the cath lab sometime around 10:00-10:30.  It shouldn't be a long procedure, as they're mainly getting information for the surgeon.  As it stands now, they do not plan to intervene.

Ethan will recover in the PACU (post-anesthesia care unit), then be moved to a room on the floor.  We'll meet with the surgical team at some point tomorrow morning and go over details for the surgery on Wednesday.  I will be sure to post those here once we know them!

Specific prayer requests for tomorrow:

-distraction from hunger -- Ethan will not be able to eat after midnight tonight and can't have anything to drink after 7:00 tomorrow morning.  Thankfully, he doesn't wake up ready to eat, so we're praying we can easily distract him while we wait.  We'd love for you to join us in praying that prayer, too!

-a smooth procedure -- From starting to time, to easy cath access, to no complications during the cath, we'd love for you to pray that all goes smoothly.  Pray for Dr. F (our new cath doc) and his team, as well as the nurses who will be taking care of Ethan after the cath.

-recovery -- In past experiences with anesthesia, Ethan has always come out of it happy and mostly alert.  Please pray that the same holds true for tomorrow! Also pray that the cath site would heal quickly with no infection

Above all, pray that God is glorified through the events of tomorrow and the week to come. He is so good and worthy of our praise!

We love y'all!
