We found out that her blood pressure is now significantly higher than our last appointment (explaining the worsening of her symptoms!). Her pressures were 210/107. In a normal child her weight and height, her blood pressure should be about 98/59. Yikes! And to think she is on two blood pressure medications already! It is time to fix this heart!
Surgery will begin at 10am on Wednesday. We will arrive at Lutheran General at 9am. They expect the surgery will last 2.5 hours. Most likely she will stay in the hospital for 3-5 days depending on her blood pressure.
Carter came down with a fever on Sunday and has been staying with Casey at my mom's house. Please pray that he feels better and that no one else gets sick, especially Therese.
We are feeling positive and looking forward to getting all this behind us.
I'll keep you posted!
