Teagan woke up friday morning with extreme swelling in her face and neck. We took her in to our local pediatrician and then to the hospital for an echo. They're thinking that she might have some blockage at her Glenn sight where they just did the repair. This would cause a restriction of blood flow from her head to her lungs and thus the swelling. We were airlifted back to Children's hospital here in Seattle last night and scheduled for a cath this morning. We handed Teag over around 9:30am to Dr. Jones and his team who will go in and try to figure out whats causing the blockage. We're hopefull that it can be fixed via cath with a balloon or stent and that will fix the swelling. I'll update later when we know more. Please say a prayer for our little bug this morning!
We started this blog to share the latest happenings at the Maxwell house and our daughter Teagan's 'heart journey'. Teagan was born March 21st 2008 with a congenital heart defect called Critical Aortic Stenosis which led to Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. (HLHS)
