Tonight has been very frustrating. We had Kaidence's echo done. During the echo we found that some damage was done to her new heart during the cath lab today. They figure what happened was that when they took the prong like snippers to grab a biopsy of the heart it clipped the part of her valve that makes it open and close. They said it is very rare to have something like this happen (should that make me feel better?) and that the doctor had never had it happen before.It is causing her valve not to open and close like it should and so the blood doesn't go where it should as well. Kaidence could live with this regurgitation if it does not get worse but it could put added stress on the heart and shorten its life. If things get worse they will have to go in and do another open heart surgery to repair the valve. Our problem is that she has already had two open heart surgeries and the more times you open the sternum the higher death rate you have. We wanted to not have to open it until Kaidence needed a new heart. I am not going to lie. Tonight I feel very frustrated. With all of Kaidence's other problems in the past I handled them well but tonight I am frustrated. I keep playing the famous "what if game." I know that Kaidence's Cardiologist is not very happy about the whole thing. The doctor that did the procedure came in and apologized for possibly causing a problem that may compromise Kaidence's heart. Kaidence just finished fighting 4 IV pokes and is exhausted. I am going to go and love and cuddle my little girl. Please pray for her once again. I am hoping that we can have more answers in the morning and that things are better and not worse. Just another bump in the road. I know that the Lord still has a plan for Kaidence.
