Wren is being discharged now. The cardiologist said the echo shows the areas treated in cath lab are looking great but there is still a gradient of about 20 in the descending aorta and around the sub-aortic area. This is a bit narrowed.

The cardiologist said the turbulence shows he "is not fixed" but much better. They will wait and see how his heart develops. The hope is that the left side becomes more efficient and flexible now that the load is reduced but there may be need for future surgery to address the sub-aortic or valve issues. There may not be.

We have a clinic visit in one week.

I am feeling relieved and anxious at the same time.
