And so we met Dr. Habana for the final admission orders and schedule.
So we need to prepare looooottttsss of blood as Omar will be hook into a heart lung machine where the blood running through it has a chance of it being destroyed. We will be needing 10 units each of RBC, platelet and plasma.
With his big aorta, it is compressing his lower left lung defecting it. With angiogram, they will have to use a bigger size of wire.
The team will perform a bentall procedure with Omar. But not right after the angiogram. According to Dr. Habana, from recent studies, there is a bigger chance of complications with kidney risk during post op if surgery will be done together with angiogram.
From his pulmonary function test, it was detected that he has small airway disease but that could be treated after the operation.
The angiogram will last for 30 minutes to an hour. We have to temporarily stop giving Omar Losartan to minimize chance of renal side effects but will double the dose of amlodipine. He will be in IV once admitted for hydration.
Prior to angiogram, he will be given Valium 5mg and Benadryl at the Cath Lab. Local anesthetic will be applied at his groin where they will insert a wire to the artery with a catheter. Dye will be used to view the coronary artery.
We will be admitted tonight, January 29, 2014 to prepare Omar for his coronary angiogram at 7am the following day, out on Friday Jan. 31. We will be admitted on Sunday, Feb. 2 to prepare him for his Bentall Procedure on Feb. 4, 2014.
Please keep on praying for us and please help us scout for his AB+ blood.
Thank you and may God bless us all.
