We found out she had AS when she was one day old. At 2-1/2 months old she had a balloon valvulopasty to open up her stenosis. Then at 9 months old (March 2000), Megan underwent a Ross Procedure. This was a very difficult time, with us trying to accept our daughter needed surgery. Her only sign of compromise was declining heart function on echo. Megan looked great. The only physical sign was she slept a lot.
Megan did very well after her Ross procedure and then six weeks later, on echo we found out her pulmonary homograft had failed.
Megan is now 2-1/2 years old and we go every 6 months to she her Cardiologist at Mott Children's Hospital. She just had an echo and all is well. We continue to hope and pray Megan can go a very long time before her next surgery.
