So as predicted in a previous post, after seeing Liz and Dr P at clinic here in London, Yale will be going back to sick kids, on his two month birthday none the less! We still have to see Dr Golding while there before it is confirmed, but we will be packing our bags prepared to stay. The ASD in Yale's heart is getting more restrictive. Its about where it was last time that they went in and ballooned it. However as proven in Yale's history, his ASD will always return to a restrictive size, so this time they will go in and place a stent in to keep it open. As much as I hate the idea of Yale having another procedure, I am glad that it will finally be stented open and it will be the end of these unforseen cath procedures, not to mention that I won't constantly be standing over him, making sure he is fine. It will allow his blood to mix better and being less restrictive means that more blood can get through the hole meaning the whole systems will work better...PHEW!
Anyhoo... Its definitely frustrating that he has to go in again, its not optimal for Yale, but he will be much better and even slightly more stable afterwards. So... stay tuned. There may be a post from Yale's grandma updating on how he did, and we hope to be home again before the weekend! After all, Yale's Grandpa Seaton is planning a visit! We don't want to miss him!
