We have just spoke with Teddy’s wonderful surgeon. Ted is being stabilised in theatre and will soon be in ICU so we can be with him shortly.
The Fontan was a success. Ted’s Fontan pressure was 15 meaning they did not have to fenestrate. He is ventilated and his condition is critical but his surgeon is very positive.
The next 24 hours will be critical in order to stabilise Ted’s new circulation and the initial goal is to get him off the ventilator.
His surgeon reminded us that HLHS Fontan children do not generally recover as well as other Fontan children with the biggest issue being drainage.
