Cath Results

July 17, 2012
8 a.m.

Daylen went in for a scheduled heart cath to see how his hemi-fontan procedure looks that was done the year before and to see if anything needed to be done prior to his last surgery. Daylen's ped cardiologist met with us a few hours after the cath begin and had mentioned everything looked beautiful and had said there was only 1 area of concern.

During Daylen's hemi-fontan procedure, he had both of his lungs patched  due to narrowing  at the lung openings that was discovered at birth. Since his hemi-fontan (4.5 months old) his left lung is showing narrowing again. His cardiologist mentioned they will either fix this with a stent or run condiut from his sup. vena cava and into his lung. If they do the stent, it can be done during another Cath prior to his surgery. We won't know answers until his next cardiology app in 4-5 months.

9 days til next heart catheterization

Daylen is scheduled for a heart cath on July 17 at 8 am. 

Please pray for him that everything will go well with no hiccups!

All they are doing is getting updated pics and video of his heart function to help determine when his Fontan surgery will be.

He has done exceptionally well with everything he has faced so far! 

Keep the positive thoughts coming :)
