Cardiac Cath

Porter had the Cardiac Cath today and he did well through the procedure.  His blood pressure dropped a little but they were able to keep it stable.  We don't have any concrete data yet but the pressures are higher than the cath he had earlier in the year.  They were able to get a good image of the obstruction when his heart is full and when it is empty; it's in a terrible location.  His right ventricle is also quite thick.  The good news is the pressure in his lungs is good so even though his heart is thick and sick his lungs are in good shape. Will update when we have more info.
