April 12 - a turn for the worst

We had a great morning, as Ajay was signing, mama, asking for water, and asking "where's daddy"and even asking to play angry birds....when about 1pm, his oxygen levels started to drop significantly. He was in the low 40's when they had to bag him to keep him breathing. Blue in color, they immediately ordered an angio CT to see what was going on. ( less invasive than a heart cath so soon after open heart is not recommended )

It was found that the conduit and shunts that were placed on Wed are now occluded  or blocked, which means that his left lung isnt receiving adequate blood supply. One of two things is possible....the collapse is a direct result of the lung reinflating after surgery which is a good thing, but has also pushed on the shunt enough to create a blockage OR its collapsed solely by a complete blockage due to blood clots within the shunts or conduits which is his main pathway of blood supply to his left lung.

Ajay will be going back in for open heart surgery at noon Fri so they can see what's is causing his drop in oxygen levels.

This came as quite a shock as you can imagine, especially since he was doing soooooo much better than he did in July thru Sept 2011 with the same procedure on the right lung.

Please pray that the doctors are able to save his lung, and shunts can be rerouted or moved to give Ajay optimum oxygen levels, and further move towards a healthy recovery. Ajay needs his lung...he only has 2/3 of his right lung, and needs his left to fully function. He can live on 1 and 2/3 but not 2/3 alone.

I will post tomorrow as we are informed of post-op results.


  1. Praying continually for your little man...GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE and HE WILL FIGHT FOR AJAY!!!!!!

  2. Praying for Ajay and his doctors, caregivers and family.
