This is the date that we have Rebecca's procedure scheduled to correct her atrial septal defect at UAB Children's Hospital. She is receiving the Amplatzer ASD closure device. After having a transesophageal echocardiogram, she will undergo a heart catherization procedure and the device will be placed through the catheter. She will have to stay overnight in the hospital. Other than bruising and soreness in her leg, we are not expecting anything remarkable from her recovery.
Please pray that all will go well and that there will be no complications. There is also a slim chance that she will not have enough rim of tissue to hold the device. If that is the case, then she will have to have open heart surgery.
