october 2015 to 7/20/2016

It has been a while since I updated. Bethanne is doing great.. we are 14 months post Fontan.  She graduated kindergarten in June.. She will be going into the first grade in Sept.. She has done lots since her surgery.. She can now ride a bike.  We have to watch her bleeding as she is on warfarin. She bruises real easy. But she is being a little kid. she runs, plays and has a great time. These are just a few pictures since Oct. 2015.  In no order..

Oct. 2015

Bethanne is in her 2nd year of kindergarten.  She is doing amazing.. She saw her cardiologist in sept. He said she is doing remarkable.. She has to have blood work every month now instead of every week to check her INR levels because of being on warfarin (coumadin). She hates the blood work. I am so proud of her..

2014-2015

On May 7th 2015. Bethanne underwent her 3rd open heart surgery.(the fontan). She did extremely well.. they put the wires in just in case she needs a pace maker.. there are no more surgeries to fix her.. The next if she ever needs one will be a  transplant. I hope we never come to that..










On March 6, 2015 bethanne went into the operating room at university hospital for dental surgery. She had 9 teeth pulled. We are now ready for her Fontan (3rd open heart surgery) on April 8,2015.

March 2011





Well so far all has been good. Bethanne is growing by leaps and bounds and learning so much.  We go to the cardiologist at the end of march for echo and ekg.. If all goes well then he will see her again in a year. It is getting closer and closer to her fontan surgery. At times I hope it will be awhile longer but then again I would like it over with.
