11:50 AM – “Beautiful Result”

We just spoke with the Cardiologist who was with Matthew during surgery doing the echocardiograms.  The sugeon is just finishing up now, and she said that they had a “beautiful result.”  Matthew’s heart is beating on it’s own now, and doesn’t look like a pacemaker will be needed.  She said that the valves were a little more complex than they expected, but the repair looks good with good flow and no restrictions.  They did not have to put in a patch between his ventricles (VSD) because he only had two tiny “pin-holes” and the defect will continue to fill in and close on its own.  They patched his atrial defect without problems.  

We will continue to wait for the surgeon to finish and come talk to us.  We are hoping to see him in another 1-2 hours in the PICU.

We are thankful that everything went so well, and we will keep updating as we know more.
