This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

Surgery Postponed

Hi this is Melodie's sister Melissa. Scarlett's cardiologist called Melodie and told her that the surgery is being postponed at least a week for two reasons:

1.) The homograft was unavailable (the human donor tissue) which will be implanted to replace her pulmonary artery 
2.) The surgeon wants to do one last CT scan of her heart before he goes in for the BIG surgery

She will post more tonight.

  1. I'm still waiting to hear hear your thoughts and feelings about this Melodie! I expect when I wake up to pump at 1:30 that you'll have something for me :-)
