September 11, 2008 - Glenn complications

Seth did wind up going back to surgery. His chest tubes were leaking enough that the surgeon and cardiologist thought it best just to go in and figure out what was going on.

Apparently, when they closed after the first surgery earlier today, a sternum wire nicked an artery. This artery was also directly above the right chest tube so it wasn't clotting because the chest tube was irritating it. He's back in his room. Stable. Sats are in the 77-82 range (good) and he looks even better than he did post op the first time. Leland & I will head home in a little while (as it's already after 10 and we've been here since just after 6 this am!).

Tomorrow's a new day and another step on Seth's road to recovery!!
