Herridge Update

herridge.jpgWe plead guilty to — and apologize for — not staying on top of this important story yesterday during this hectic week.

So we won’t try to reinvent the wheel, but point your mouses here, here and here to learn more about the amazing story of DC-based Fox News Channel correspondent Catherine Herridge, who underwent 10 hours of surgery yesterday in order to provide her infant son — Peter — with a portion of her liver. Peter was born with biliary atresia, a rare condition that afflicts roughly 300 individuals annually.

Greta van Susteren has been posting updates here and received word from Fox’s Jeff Miller that, as of 4:51pm yesterday, “[D]octors came out and said, ‘It was all a success… little Peter is now finished… and will be moved to the ICU if not there already… Catherine is doing extremely well and she is in the other hospital ICU… doctors said it went very well.’ … Jeff also said the doctors said that Catherine and Peter will spend the next 4-5 days in the ICU. Ultrasounds will be performed in next 3-5 days. After 7th day, worry about rejections. Second month worry about infections. The next 2-3 days are crucial, but everything went fine.”

Our thoughts are with her and her family.
