Forward to Fontan
The SickKids cardiology team has decided to go straight to the Fontan surgery. They reviewed her echos and heart catheter data and decided the only surgery that will solve Evynn's low saturation issue is the Fontan. They feel that her valve is probably not leaking as bad as the reports say (reports are subjective) and that the blood pressure in her heart are as good as any pre-Fontan candidate. A date for her surgery has not been set yet, we will find out soon. It will be sometime in the next 2-3 months.
