Ryan had an echocardiogram yesterday that revealed significant narrowing of her pulmonary valve. They have put her on a medication to counteract it but they think they may need to place a shunt to make sure Ryan gets the proper oxygenated blood flow to her lungs. We thought we were going to avoid this and get to take her home for a few months before the full repair of her heart. Instead this would mean that she would go from St. Joes straight over to PCH for the procedure. She would then come home for up to 9 months then go back to PCH for the full repair. Our hope right now is that the medication she is on works and we can avoid this surgery. Thanks for the continued prayer and support. Jared
