Kelsi's cath lab procedure

Dr. Cowley called and said that they are definitely going to close the hole in Kelsi's fontan. There is no set date yet but it will be in 6-8 weeks. They will go through her groin with a catheter and close the hole with a balloon. She will be able to go home after the procedure as long as everything is ok. Here is a picture of the fontan (actual size they put in Kelsi) and then a picture of where the fontan in her heart (labeled RA.) The hole that is in between the artificial wall and the heart is the hole that they will close.
