Like the energizer bunny....this boy keeps going and going and going
That was probably the turning point for Vu and I. We weren't just going to let Vance fade away. I canceled hospice the next day and they were still trying to weasel money out of us by not filing the papers even after me telling them I didn't want them. We made the appointment with cardiology. It was going to be a bit of a wait, but Vance had already held on this long, what's a couple more weeks? At that visit we got the most wonderful news. Vance's PDA -ductal artery was for all intensive purposes closed and he was still doing good. This was the thing we had thought was keeping him alive and now I'm told he's been doing this on his own the whole time. More than likely that episode the day we brought him home was it closing. Even our cardiologist was all smiles. Vance was strong enough to have the surgery if that was what we wanted and with him not being ductal dependent it would be a much easier surgery for him to recover from. She said the only better news was if the left side of his heart grew!
