We’ve gotten in as much snuggling as we could over the past few days, and we are as ready as we can be for surgery tomorrow morning.
I found a good video explaining a bit about coarctation of the aorta.
Also wanted to share more about our surgeons, Dr. Monge and Dr. Backer. Dr. Backer is the Division Head of Cardiovascular-Thoracic Surgery, and Lurie Childrens was ranked #15 nationally for pediatric cardiology and heart surgery. We are in fantastic hands tomorrow.
Surgery prep begins at 7:30am and we expect surgery to be complete by early afternoon. We will be getting hourly updates during the procedure and will update the blog as we get any new information.
