Surgery Set... Kind Of...

The charge nurse told Ashley earlier this morning that they thought Cole would be going home today and be able to go to the ALGS picnic...Well the nurse was wrong. They just did rounds on Cole and since his SATS have been going down a little bit at a time that they want to do surgery this admission. Which has been our feeling all along. They might even put him back on oxygen to boost up his SATS. The surgeon's thoughts would be to put a shunt into help grow his pulmonary arteries. This will most likely happen on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm glad we have a more clearly defined plan now.

  1. Hi, I just found your site and am a fellow AGS parent. My Ashley is almost 8 years old and is 6 years post op open heart surgery to repair her pulmonary arteries. She had the same shunt operation you are speaking of and I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you and your family. It is so hard to play the "waiting game". I know. Just a quick not of encouragement and prayers.
