Mimi is having a surgical procedure this morning to repair a problem in her heart that is causing tachycardia (very rapid heart rate). It was a surprise for all of us to learn that Mimi was born with this defect but we weren’t aware of it until a short time ago. In learning about the problem, Sweet Pea described it as more of an electrical wiring problem than a plumbing problem.
The procedure is conducted through catheters placed in a large vein on both sides of her groin (sorry, I can’t think of a better word) and up into her heart. Thankfully there is no cutting involved and she should only stay one night in the hospital.
Regardless, it’s my baby’s heart we’re talking about, so prayers would be very appreciated.
Russ and I have been in Spokane since Sunday night and plan to head home once we know she is fine and feeling reasonably well. Andrew will stay at the hospital with her tonight.
