Evan's first heart catherization was on Sept. 9th 2004. We were so scared to hand Evan over but, the procedure didn't take very long. We got to the hospital at 7:00 that morning and around 9:00 they let us carry him to the cath. lab room and the nurses took him from there. We sat with a few family members and friends in the lobby. They told us they would correspond through the procedure by calling us on the phone in the lobby. Everytime that phone rang I would get really tense, (Is that my baby, is he okay???) I wouldn't answer it so, Eric got that job. It was probably 2 hours when they told us it was over and to come to the lab for the results. There was nothing that we hadn't already been told, kind of just a confirmation on everything for the doctors I suppose. Once we were able to see Evan he cried and cried and ended up making himself sick from crying and probably drinking a little to much too soon. We went home that evening and by the next morning you would have never known he had gone through that the day before.
