Pre-Cath Work Up

Connie went to Children's today for his pre cath testing. He will have a cath tomorrow with Dr. Balzer. He was very brave-not the least bit nervous actually. He handles these things like a pro. He requested a lemon-smelling face mask tomorrow for when they "gas" him to sleep and wants to watch Bolt on his iPod while he lays flat for 6 hours after he's done with his "nap!" He amazed everyone there today. The last time any of them saw him he was in heart failure and some there felt that a transplant was his only option. Most of the people we saw today hadn't seen him since April 2008. He still had the NG feeding tube back then! I better get to bed soon since he's first case tomorrow. We will be leaving the house around 6am. Please pray that Connie has no fears before the procedure, that his pain is controlled afterward and that things go smoothly, both heart-wise and emotionally. Pray for the doctor's wisdom and that God will guide his hands. Lord, please bless Conway and let him know you are with him through this procedure. Shine on him and let all those we will meet tomorrow see you in us. In Jesus' name, Amen. If you are on Facebook we will be posting updates throughout the day there.

I was out of town, so missed these postings until today, Erin. I did know about the cath, so was praying, but I will keep it up. I am so grateful for the peace you feel, and the awareness of being in the hands of God. Love and prayers always. Sr Josephine
