Theodora's first surgery has been confirmed for noon on April 8th. Next week, we will be in Milwaukee for an appointment with the cardiac anesthesiologist, then one last check in with her electropysiologist (EP) at the Herma Heart Center. If we get the all clear, Theodora will have the first of three surgeries on her hands to repair the syndactyly.
With her underlying condition, there is the higher than average possibility that even with the all clear from the doctors and the beta-blockers she has taken since birth she will go into a 2:1 AV heart block ( http://bit.ly/1iEUUSP
) under the anesthesia. Her EP has confirmed that he will be on hand for the first surgery in the event she has a cardiac episode.
