Update – 5:30 a.m.
Another surgical resident came in and confirmed that Dr. Kato and the hepatologist plan on moving forward with the transplant as long as everything goes well with the cadaver donor organ. Ana’s fever went down to 100.1 without Tylenol which was the deciding factor (they wanted to make sure it didn’t spike). So it is now looking like they will come to get her at around 6:30 to bring her to the OR. Jim signed a release form. We will wait either in the OR or in the Pediatric ICU waiting room. The hepatologist said she would give us updates throughout the surgery. I could use some coffee.
