Catherine and her son, Peter (Updated)


Greta Van Susteren has posted updates along with the story on her blog site today for Catherine and her son, Peter.

I had thought that I had heard Catherine say her son was five months old, but went by what Greta had written in yesterday's blog.

Greta talks about the attitude of the MD's doing the two surgeries in the main portion of her blog today, and I would be willing to bet that there will be further updates on her program tonight on Fox News. For now, go check out her blog, but here are later updates...


10:00 a.m. ET UPDATE:

We just got the first update from the doctor: both Catherine Herridge and Peter are doing great. No problems at all. The update was brief b/c the surgeries just got started.
Next update will be in two hours.

Noon ET UPDATE:

Catherine and Peter are doing great. Catherine's liver is fine. They are in the middle of surgery now.

12:30 p.m. ET UPDATE:

In about 15-20 minutes, Catherine's liver will be transferred from her hospital to Peter's. Both Peter and Catherine are doing well — smooth sailing so far.

1:21 p.m. ET UPDATE

Catherine's liver has been transferred. They are finishing Catherine's operation and are working on Peter with his new liver.

2:00 p.m. ET UPDATE:

Catherine is done with her surgery — she is now in post-op and in about an hour, she'll be transferred to the ICU. Nurses say Peter is doing great. Doctors hope to be done with everything by 4 p.m. ET

4:25 p.m. ET UPDATE:

Peter's surgery is complete. They are closing him up now. Doctors should be out soon to address the family.

June 7 Update:

10:27a.m. ET UPDATE:

I just spoke to Catherine's husband, J.D. Peter's doctor said Peter's morning ultrasound looks good: the new liver is working. Catherine is still in ICU.


If you saw Tuesday night's show, you know the good news: Catherine Herridge and her infant son, Peter, are doing really well. Per the medical reports at the end of the day, both emerged from surgery with high marks! The next few weeks are important, but we are confident that they will both do well. They are in very good hands at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. I know I sound like a broken record, but UPMC is truly a remarkable medical center — both in skill and how they make the patient feel.
