Because The Odds Weren't Against Her Enough

I spoke with Reyna's ortho surgeon this morning. He's concerned about the heart defects that were found last year during all the tests they ran to try and find the cause of her seizures. The surgeon wants Reyna to see a cardiologist about a month before the surgery to find out if there have been any significant changes. If the cardiologist clears her for surgery, there will still be a higher risk than normal with the anesthesia. If the cardiologist doesn't clear her, well, then, there's no surgery. I'm just waiting now for a call with the cost estimate for the chest x-rays and appointment.

Reyna is one tough cookie. She'll make it through. Give her and Duncan and extra big hug from me and I'll bring all you all some turkey this Friday.

Reyna is the prototype for the Energizer bunny. The only problem they are likely to have with Anesthesia is finding enough.
