The result of the MRI shows that there is about 1/2 the blood flow through the Glen to the pulmonary artery. So this means there isn't enough blood flowing into her lungs, and this is why she has blue/purple lips often. They would like to see if the cause is collateral veins of if it is pressures in her pulmonary artery. Now they want to do a Cardiac Cath surgery sometime in the next few months to figure out why there is low blood flow to her lungs. The team of Cardiologist at the Cardiac Unit at the Stollery Hospital had a conference about Sara's MRI and decided on scheduling a Cath. After she has the Cath they will discuss and determine what will be the next step for Sara.
We are so thankful for all your prayers, we are so encouraged by all of you! Happy Thanksgiving!

We are so thankful for the wonderful father's in our lives, thanks Dad, Grandpa Lepp & Grandpa Congo!
Sara had surgery to repair Strambismus (esotropia or "crossed eyes") November 2010. Her right eye was dominant and moved normally, while her left pointed inwards. Her surgery was a sucess, and her eyes were straight for some time. Now her left eye is dominant and moves normally, and her right eye turns outwards (exotropia). Her balance was off and we think it was because she was seeing double vision. Her brain can handle seeing double vision only so long, and then it decides to use one picture from one eye.
Sara's latest appointment was with the Optimologist at the Stollery Children's Hospital on Tuesday. The doctor says this is a frustrating thing that happens after surgery and some children may require a second surgery. Since her eyes are straight when she's looking at things near, repositioning the inner muscles in the first surgery was successful. Now the question is, will we be able to fix her eyes to be straight with a second surgery repositioning the outer muscles? We are being referred now to the surgeon to see what the next step will be.
Our next Cardiologist appointment will be July 29th at the Stollery.
