Let the cath begin!
Anyway, to the important stuff...
Sam started his cardiac catheterization about 10 minutes ago. It took a bit longer than expected to get "access" to his veins in order to start the procedure, but so far there is nothing of interest to report. He started at roughly 10:00 MST, and we expect them to not only take diagnostic measurements but also attempt at least one balloon plasty (in order to widen some narrow spots in his arteries/veins). So...we expect the procedure to take between 4-6 hours, and we should have another update in about an hour or so...until then, here's a cute picture of Kristin loving on the little guy before they took him away.
