We just had a chance to talk with Dr. Hanley. He is about ten minutes from going into the OR to start his part of the operation. Everything is going well with Kiran so far. They have six collaterals to correct – so six patches to do. They will then do the flow test to determine if they will be putting a shunt in or doing the full repair on the heart. Dr. Hanley said there seems to be good blood flow into the lungs, and that generally means they can do the full intercardiac repair! We couldn’t help it – we walked out of that conference room with big smiles on our faces. We have so much hope and so much confidence in this surgeon.
And he was wearing his Keen on Kiran wristband.
