Friday we went through a shorter version of last week's pre-op. We were able to sit down with several different doctors including Dr. Lang, Shane's cardiac case manager, and his surgeon, Dr. Pigulla. We are still hearing encouraging things with respect to his anatomy which is good! Dr. Lang mentioned that the initial report they saw for Shane was not encouraging----Chinese orphan, no intervention with the defects he presented; it often means a difficult repair(if repairable) with unpredictable outcomes. Does this mean it will be easy? No but more straightforward perhaps. and with the data that they have gathered, at least, the doctors feel as knowledgeable as they can be before heading into surgery .
Thank you for your continued prayers for Shane and his doctors!
and a BIG thank you to the S family for caring for our home and especially our sweet Lauren! We miss you, Lauren! Hugs and kisses!
