Liam is doing well - he's now in the step-down unit, recovering from his catheterization. They removed 27 cc's of fluid from his pericardial sac near the right atrium. This is pretty significant, considering how small his heart is. The catheter is still in, coming out of his chest to allow any additional fluid to drain if necessary. Right now he's still pretty sleepy from the anesthesia, but his breathing is much more calm than it was before the procedure.
They say that in about an hour he should be able to come back into our room with us.
