Pre-Op Surgery Update

Ok everyone here is the update. Surgery is set for Monday and we have to be there at 6:45 am, the surgeron would not say how long the surgery would take. They are first going to close the two close the two holes in her heart by using tissues from her body, and the major valve he will either fix it or replace it. If he has to replace it she will have to have replaced at 4 years old and then at ...10 years old.

As for the length of time in the hospital is any where from one week to a month. It all depends on how will she does. The incision will be closed with what they call a glue so the scar she will have will be mild.

They also did a chest xray today and her chest is clear and when they did blood work she just laid there talking to the tech or watching tv she never cried at all.

So we are all set for Monday. I will update on Monday when she goes in and comes out and in the C-ICU. If you have any questions let me know. Thank you everyone for all your love and support.
