Gabi was in recovery by about 4:30. I spoke with carol (cards nurse), Kate (cath nurse), Dr. Cava and Dr. Forester after the procedure and they all agreed her pressuresa looked great! They all agreed that she could proceed with the fontan. If her numbers were too high, they probably all would like to discuss getting on the transplantlist. But that is not the case! Alleluia.
Dr. F saw one artery in her right shoulder that needed to be coiled off so she proceeded with that. Dr. Cava didn’t want to mess with anything else… He explained they can finish all those necessary tune ups during the fontan in July.
She is resting now and I am trying to keep her still. They insert the catheter into the main artery at the top of the leg and if it doesn’t stay still for a few hours there cold be a lot of bleeding. But she is handling it well.
They all say will be getting out of here tonight… Hopefully around 8:30 or 9:00. Its been a long day but I am SO thankful this is over and that we got great results!
Thanks be to God!
