Riley is out of the Cath lab. It took about 3 hours. Dr. Rome ended up stenting 3 veins instead of 1 or 2. As usual everything looks good right now. It’s a wait and see as to what the veins will do as far as narrowing.
There is one good note out of the day. They did not lose Riley’s pulse in his feet this time. That means we should be able to leave tomorrow. Riley is on antibiotics for tonight because of the stents, and he is also receiving heperin as a precaution. Dr. Rome also wants to get his Plavix level back up since he has been off of it since Sunday.
Other then that he is in the CPRU recovering. He is not happy at all. He has to lay flat for 6 hours. Yeah….right…they are letting Darren hold him right now, but flat on his lap. That wasn’t flying when I walked out. Riley likes the shoulder.
So as I’ve said a million times….the journey continues. Please continue to pray…loud…..Riley has to defeat the odds!!!
