IVY IS OPERABLE!!!!!

Pin It


She is done!!! Her lungs are fine! Praise God!! The only surprise is that along with the pulmonary artery being small and thickened ( called pulmonary stenosis) her pulmonary valve is only 2.9mm so very tiny. Both will need to be re-designed but it is doable!! Her vsd is as thought, HUGE, and the switched arteries (transposition of the great arteries), well, their switched..

Her open heart surgery will include lots of work but Ivy is operable and has HOPE written all over her!!!!!!!!

We are waiting for the surgeon who will be doing the surgery to come and speak with us. Ivy is sedated still and will be for a while due to the need to keep her from bending her legs. Doc told us her leg is big and very blue :( We thank you all for your prayers today and for loving on our family!!! Thanking God for orchestrating this day!


Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." ~Matthew 19:26
