A day after baby Evynn's surgery
Evynn surgery took longer than expected due to her complicated condition. She was not doing as well as the doctors wanted her to so she was put medication to increase her heart beat strength and a pacmaker for regularity. She has a machine breathing for her to help her recover. She is back in the Critical Care Unit and is on a long road to recover. The Norwood surgery accomplished what the doctors intended. Evynn is heavily sedated and not out of the woods yet, but she did well over night. The family is coping as best they can with the circumstances. Evynn is a part of three studies at Sick Kids which her parents are happy to know she may help other babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome in the future.
