Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Monday, February 04, 2008


Ron drove us in to the Brompton - it only took an hour - we found a suitable parking space and were in good time for our appointment.
Mr Sethia's opinion is that Victoria ought not to have surgery right now. If the problem were repaired now it might re-develop. the suggested alternative might be medicine long-term (which neither I nor Ron are very chuffed about but I'll have to do some research....).
We get to see our 'new' cardiologist (the one we've had from the start has now retired) in about 5 weeks when Victoria will be checked over again. The main concern for the surgeon is that the heart repair work is not under undue stress because of the narrowing - which he thinks it isn't .

so, the good news is that there is going to be no disruption to schoolwork plans this year so we'll be able to keep on track with Omnibus.

We've got a week off, this week. Thomas is working with Philip and Lucy is going with them later today to paint at Sidcup.
