Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers for Teresa today . The news is very optimistic. Her heart Cath. results showed improvement in the vasculature of her lungs and her heart function has improved ! We are very happy with these results.
Even though this is Fantastic news ( her lungs are moving in the right direction) she is not to the point of being able to receive a heart transplant ...yet. Dr. H feels Single Ventricle Palliation (A Glenn or Fontan procedure) will not ever be an option for her . He thinks if her lungs continue to show improvement over the next 6-9 months she will then be at the point of being able to survive just a heart transplant. In 9 months she will have another cath. to see if her lungs have improved further or if she has plateaued. For now her meds.will be tweaked a little and she will be watched closely .
We are very hopeful but for now we have to let it be and be patient as God continues to slowly heal her lungs. A year ago we were told her lungs were irreversibly damaged and she most likely would never get to the point of just a heart transplant. Only by God ...
