And it's a go

We were not kept long in suspense. Dr. B called probably as soon as the surgeons meeting was over and gave the news. The surgeons want to do the surgery. They believe her heart is a larger than her age and size warrant and the hole is large enough that it will be best for her in the long run to have it closed. If it were not closed, there is the probability of long-term damage that would increase her risk of heart problems later in life. Closing the hole will allow the heart to return to its normal size and it will work as well as if she had never had a hole.

So the surgeons' office will call us to schedule the family consultation and we'll decide on a date for the surgery.
