UPDATE....BECAUSE I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE PRAYING and WONDERING WHATS GOING ON

Let's see if I can make a coherent sentence. Jack is stable tonight. Blood pressures and vitals are looking much better but we are still not sure what caused the drastic drop, as in 60/40. They immediately gave him fluid, oxygen and I am not even sure what else. I walked back in the cubicle thinking we were about to leave and immediately knew something was wrong. You can read a nurses face and she just said "Dr T is on his way"! And nothing made me happier to hear. Hopefully it was the combination of the meds they used in the cath and then some new meds they started for a different problem...Anyway for a couple of hours we had some scary moments.. The doctor had gone home and and he was back in 10 minutes and did not leave for several hours. So it was
A LONG DAY...and then no bed in the hospital so Jack along with a few other patients are spending the night in the cath lab on stretcher like beds.....not happy campers ...actually NOT HAPPY AT ALL. I hope I will have a better report tomorrow. Its days like these when your adult kids step up to the plate. I cannot remember a day I have been more proud of them. Poor Greg had just gotten to LSU to be with Grayson and had to come right back to us. Amanda had just gotten back to work. Micah was "the best" today, taking care of any and everything I needed.
They do not have a final report on Grayson but it looks like everything is fine with him.
Thanks to all of you that called and texted and prayed. Carlton you made our day and we love you for coming and staying... and Terri, you are not only my number one elf, you are the best hospital company ever. You will never know how much you coming EARLY today and staying meant.....I am too tired to check for typos tonight, but promise a full report tomorrow. There was really no where for us to stay tonight and Micah is going to be back early in the morning and HOPEFULLY drive Jack home...If not, I am not sure what they will do. The nurse told us they have 23 caths scheduled for tomorrow morning and only 14 beds, and five of those are being used tonight, so it sounds like they have a problem.
