We had our appointment with Georgia's Cardiologist today and have a plan. He was great and took a lot of time to answer our uestions. Basically, what he thinks is the problem is that Georgia's pulmonary valve (the one that regulates blood flow to the lungs) was really maformed at birth. He explained that instead of three moving flaps she basically had two "nubbins" and that in her original surgery they attached dacron to these to try to make a semi-functiong valve. For some reason it is not moving correctly. Instead of flapping open and closed it is creating a dome and letting very little blood through. So the blood that is getting through is, in his words, "shooting through like a fire hose" and causing her to be more tired etc.
So on Sept 12th she will go in for surgery. Via catheter they are going to try to open up the pulmonary valve some more in hope that it will function better and cause there to be less resistance. I am so glad after a whole year that we finally have some answers and hopefully a soluntion!!! But, at the same time I feel sick to my stomach about anyone doing anything in the heart of my tiny little girl.
Thanks so much for you prayers!
