Callie is doing well, her cath was about 2hrs this time. She was finished about 745pm and she has been resting in the ICU since. The results of the cath showed that really nothing had changed since the last cath in January. Her right shunt is smaller and now TOO small for her and the right upper pulmonary vein was narrowed once again. But, everything else remained unchanged. So, they balloned open that vein again and that was about it. Callie is still resting on the ventilator, her left lung is suffering some. So, it needs a little time to heal. The left lung is her worse lung of the two, so when anything is done it hits it hard sometimes.
The game plan for Callie is to have her right shunt replaced with a bigger shunt. She is scheduled for Friday as of right now for surgery. It's always hard sending your child into a surgery but this upcoming one is weighing exceptionally hard on me. It's been a year and half since Callie's last surgery and it's been so nice. It's very hard to send her into another one but I know she needs this shunt replaced badly and replacing this shunt will hopefully get her breathing back comfortably. And all around in a better place. VERY HARD!!!!!
Right now, it's a little hard for me to sit down and gather my thoughts. So, please forgive me if there are things I haven't explained or are forgetting. Will is hoping to fly out on Thursday and will stay as long as he can. It's very hard on him to be away from Callie during times like these. It just very stressful in general to have your family split up in such an emotional time. I will update as things happen and if anything changes. I appreciate everyone and all the support and prayers everyone has sent our way. Please keep Callie in your prayers, for a successful, uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery.
