Cardiac Update

After a couple of anxious weeks waiting we found out yesterday the results of Wrigglesworth’s CT scan. His shunt is working really well, and they expect him to get to around 10kgs before he will need his Rastelli operation, which is the open heart operation he needs to re-plumb his heart properly.

The 10kg goal was what the surgeon who popped the shunt in initially expected as the shunt was a bit big for him to start with. Its great to have it confirmed though, as many tikes like Albie get the Rastelli when they are over 6kgs, and that is unnervingly close. So yay! We can relax into the rest of 2011 and pop all thoughts of scariness safely into next years calendar!!
