It is not 4:50 AM, and I have returned home for a few hours' sleep before it's time for our kids to be off to school. Claudia's surgery (read blog before this for more information) was successful. The doctor was relieved that Claudia came in when she did, as the clot was a bit more complicated than the CT showed.
Claudia is resting quietly, enduring some pain in both arms (she has had numerous pokes, including two separate IV's), but receiving relief from the pain medication drip.
In the very near future the cardiologist(s) will try to ascertain the nature of her heart clot ... its origin and its resolution.
