Quoting Thread Killa:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Ailey+Lennon+Renner's Mom:</b>" my baby has a different defect, ... [snip!] ... do it til she's around 4 to 6 months old. So she will need meds and oxygen, but I am wondering if she will still need it after."
is she in CHF?
my sons first surgery was at 10 days old. he was intubated and all that jazz until that point. he came home 8 days after only on lasix, which they weaned him off of, and then started back up about a month before his second sugery at 3.5 months. he was never on any oral heart med besides lasix.
she will probably be on meds coming home from surgery but they will wean her when her heart is ready. it takes awhile for their heart to get better after being "fixed"
she will not be on them for life tho
