We checked in here at the hospital around 10am and handed Teag over at 10:40. They were scheduled to start putting her lines in around 11:15. We received a page around 1:15 that she was all prepped and they were starting. We were told that it takes a long time the 2nd time around to get through the scar tissue and get her on bypass... I called the ICU around 2:45 and they were still getting her prepped for bypass but they were almost there. Once she's on bypass we'll get another page that they're actually doing the 'work'. (connecting her svc, etc) Then another page when she's off bypass, and finally the 4th page when she's being moved to the ICU. Right now they still haven't confirmed that she's officially on bypass, and its taking longer than Trent or I thought. I had the ICU desk call the OR and they said everything is going fine and that sometimes it just takes awhile to get everything hooked up. They said once the actual 'work' starts that the rest should go pretty quickly. Please keep those prayers coming! I'll update again when we know more.
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)
