Got home from Abredeen R.I. this evening. Lou has to go back next week for an angiogram and some other tests which means we will be there for two nights. The overall prognosis is that she will be having open heart surgery again, as expected. Mitral valve needs replacing and the tricuspid valve needs major repairs too, so that will be done at the same, with maybe some other work.
It’s a major op, with significant risks attached, but we have no choice. They expect to be able to operate around Christmas, or shortly after, so it’s not too long to wait.
So tomorrow’s job is to arrange flights, hotels, dog minder etc. for next week.
