Dr. Natarajan (Owens Cardiologist) called this evening and told us that Owens liver doctors, liver transplant doctors, cardiac anesthesia and heart surgeon all sat down to talk about Owen.  She said they have a plan in place for Owen and that Owen will go on the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) floor after his liver transplant instead of the CICU (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit).  They feel like that is best due to the fact that they know more about the liver transplant aspect and they know some from the cardiac aspects.  The cardiologists will still check up on Owen often.  She also said she wants to get echocardiograms more often to be sure that from a cardiac standpoint nothing changes.  They apparently are going to do a echo when they call him in for a transplant before moving forward with the transplant.  Again, to be sure nothing changed and that he wouldn't be at any added risks. 

GI called and we have appointments on Friday at CHOP.  We have to meet with Social Work & Psychology, plus Owen needs to get bloodwork done and possibly his vitamin K shot unless CHOP homecare comes out Thursday morning.
