Surgery Day

Surgery day!

Eliana had stabilized well over the first two days, so by Thursday she was ready for her valvuloplasty.  Doctors went up to her heart through a vein in her leg and used a balloon to break open the valve that was causing problems.  Surgery went well, though the leg vein clotted up a bit (not an unexpected complication) so her leg is a little swollen and purple.  OK…a lot swollen (like a grape popsicle), but it should get better over time.
