Preliminary Details

Yesterday, while I was at work, Don got the phone call from Variety Children's Heart Clinic regarding Nate's conference.

Here are the basics - more details will come when we know them.

They had a good conference and spent quite a bit of time talking about Nate. They are all in agreement that a Pulmonary Artery banding be done. He is rated at a 2/3 priority, which means the surgery will happen in the next 6 weeks to 3 months. We'll get about 2 weeks notice before the surgery. They expect that Nate will be in hospital (Edmonton) for 7-10 days.

I still have a lot of questions. Some of the information Don was given yesterday contradicts what Dr. Soni told us at our last appointment, so there are still a lot of details to discuss.

Tomorrow we're off to Winnipeg for RSV needles (monthly injection during cold/respiratory season - November to April) which are normally done at BTHC, but due to H1N1 clinics, we'll have to go to Children's in Winnipeg.

Here are the boys checking out the space station on Sunday night. It was visible for about 5 minutes - Brady got quite a kick out of seeing the astronaut's home!
