Kieran’s Pulmonary Arterioplasty Surgery

Update posted by Vanessa Oh On May 04, 2020

Also, for accountability, here’s the bill. Kieran recovered pretty quickly, thankfully!

Thank you so much to everyone who have contributed and prayed for Kieran! It has been a mentally and physically exhausting week or two but it was a lot easier knowing I had so much support! ❤️🙏🏻 I hope you can feel my heartfelt gratitude!

Hello! Praise the Lord, Kieran has been discharged! We’re back home! He still has low grade fever here and there but we’re so glad to be out of the hospital!

Kieran’s fever has broken for now! His oxygen saturation seems to have stabilized over the night too. Yesterday he was chirpier and started talking too.

This morning, we took off his nasal tube. He seems happy about it! Hopefully, we might be able to go home later today!

For those wondering about the ASD (the hole in his heart), it can be closed later on but right now it’s required to help relieve the pressure in his right heart. So I guess he’ll at least need one more procedure to get that closed later on.

Sorry this was yesterday’s update.

Kieran should be weaning off the oxygen supply soon, but his fever is still going up and down. Otherwise, he seems to be doing fine. Hopefully, he will be able to go home tomorrow.

Mm he seems to still not want to talk though. A little moody and grouchy too. In this picture he’s not actually smiling for the camera. Just happened to catch him mid-chew and it looks like a smirk.

Sorry I didn’t update much yesterday but we were moved up to the general ward in the afternoon! He’s still running a fever but it’s lower than the last two days.

Kieran has been extubated, meaning he doesn’t have to rely on the ventilator to breathe. However, he is being given oxygen to keep his oxygen saturation up for now. He’s having a slight fever and had been given paracetamol. but otherwise, his doctors say he’s doing well

Haven’t seen Kieran yet but managed to talk to his surgeon. Basically, Kieran was in a pretty bad state when they started the main surgery cuz his right heart pressure was really high and his body was waterlogged everywhere but they managed to enlarge both the pulmonary arteries and lower the pressure. They had to leave a small hole in the atrial septum again but it’s a small issue that can be easily closed in future.

That being said, his oxygen saturation will be lowish (85-90?) but it was more important for them to relieve the pressure otherwise Kieran would have gone into heart failure. The water retention will resolve itself once the pressure in the heart is lowered.

I would really appreciate some prayers now. Initially they wanted to do a minimally invasive method but seems like they have to do a midline sternotomy again this time (aka open chest). 😭
