6 Weeks Old

Brandt was actually 6 weeks two days ago, but since I've been having internet connection problems since then, it is now Thursday of his 6 week mark. Many people have asked me regarding his next surgery, and the general plan with HLHS babies is for the second procedure, the Glenn Surgery, to be scheduled anywhere from 4 to 6 months of age. However, our cardiologist is closely monitoring his saturation levels, the leakage in the working valve of his heart, and his BP levels to make recommendation as to the specific timing of the surgery. This is another reason we need to see him more weight gain, so that if he has to have surgery earlier than expected, his strength and endurance offer as much support to another open heart surgery as possible.

Due to scheduling problems with our pediatrician and the holiday weekend, it's been over a week now since he's had his stats or weight checked, so I am ready for an update on his status as well as some help regarding all the meds he's on for reflux . . . that next appointment will be tomorrow at 10, followed by his next cardiologist appointment Monday the 12th.
