Cath Results

The doctors did find a couple of clots in Carla's heart. They closed her fenestration to make sure that the clots didn't get out into the brain. From the cath results they do not think that she was using the fenestration much anyway, so closing the fenestration will probably not be a problem. They did not find any narrowing of the arteries, so the question of why the clots formed is still a little bit of a mystery. At this point the plan is to put Carla on a blood thinner called Heprin to dissolve the clots and then we will come home on Cumadin (sp?) in the future. Right now Carla is in the Cardiac ICU and we are waiting to see her. She was stable through the whole process and we are hoping she continues to just get better. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Jen
