Kathleen (Becky’s PCICU nurse) just updated us and everything is going well.
Becky went to sleep quickly. They placed an arterial line on the left side and a central line on the right side. They did a transesophageal echo (TEE) to better image the heart without the lungs and ribs getting in the way. This will be repeated after the surgical repair is done. Becky is now on the by-pass machine. There will be another update around 11:00am.
