Surgery Day - Part 3 - Good News!
The surgery is complete and everything went very well! Dr. Hanley said he found things to be a little simpler than expected and that everything he did went smoothly. He closed the hole between the ventricles, widened the opening between the right venticle and main pulmonary artery, and widened the connection between the main pulmonary artery and left pulmonary artery. Scott is off the hear/lung machine and his chest is closed. We haven't been able to see him yet, but hope to soon. He still has a long way to go, but at least the first big hurdle has been cleared. More to come. P&M
