OMG i dread it every yr but its coming up very fast. Josh had open heart surgery when he was 15 months old. this was after he had a cardiac cathiter at 9 months old. We were told that he souldnt have been here with his heart problems and yet there he was with no signs of illness. he also had a narrowed artery and it was this that saved his life. Well he is 9 this yr and touch wood they have been very pleased with the repair that they did. there is slight leakage on the pulmanery valves but nothing to worry about.
At the same time as Joshs appointment the consultant also sees my youngest daughter Kaitlyn. she has to have surgey but they are waiting until she is around 5 as the hole is in a very akward place and they hope to do it via key hole but we wont know if they can until she is being operated on. she is now 3 and i dread the appoitment incase they decide to do it sooner.
