We say round one because during the heart cath the cardiologist found that the ASD (atrial septal defect) was actually bigger than they thought (actually 10-14mm) and could not be fixed with a coil which could have been done during the cath. The plan now is to schedule open heart surgery for sometime in the next few weeks to a month. During the open heart surgery they will patch the ASD and tie off the PDA (the second defect that was much smaller and not too much of a concern for them). The outcome of this should be more energy and less respiratory problems for Livi.
Of course Brian and I are nervous for this next step, but we know that the doctors here are very capable and that ultimately the Lord has her and our whole family in His hands. We appreciate all of the prayers and words of encouragement.
