Well... after a long day at LHSC with Yale at the cardiology clinic, we are going back to sick kids. I'm so sad and scared. Apparently Dr Buffo noticed that the ASD (the hole in the wall between the two upper chambers of the heart) is starting to close. This is a problem because this hole needs to be there to allow the blood to mix and to go up through the stent that was placed in the PDA and out to the body. I'm glad we caught this when we did, but really upset that Yale has to undergo another procedure....after only a week and a few days at home. He just seemed so normal to me that I wasn't prepared to hear we would be going back to Sick Kids and being admitted so soon. Apparently it won't be an open heart procedure, but something done in the Cath Lab... but still risky and scary as anything they do to his fragile heart is risky and scary.
I'm trying to use my positive thinking about this... but its just something I wasn't prepared for and really has come to slap me across the face. Lot of positive thoughts and prayers are needed for Yale that the procedure goes off without a hitch, and we are back home again really soon!
