Here is a quick overview of what TET is....
What It Is (From the American Heart Association)
Tetralogy of Fallot has four key features. A ventricular septal defect (a hole between the ventricles) and many levels of obstruction from the right ventricle to the lungs (pulmonary stenosis) are the most important. Also, the aorta (major artery from the heart to the body) lies directly over the ventricular septal defect, and the right ventricle develops thickened muscle.
Because the aorta overrides the ventricular defect and there's pulmonary stenosis, blood from both ventricles (oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor) is pumped into the body. Sometimes the pulmonary valve is completely obstructed (pulmonary atresia). Infants and young children with unrepaired tetralogy of Fallot are often blue (cyanotic). The reason is that some oxygen-poor blood is pumped to the body.
For everyone that lives close to us and hangs out with us this is for you... PLEASE for Maccoys sake if you have been sick in the last 10 to 14 days or think you maybe coming down with something PLEASE STAY AWAY!!! We would love to see you as long as you haven't been or aren't ill!!!
So no Fever,Diarrhea,Vomiting, Cough,Runny Nose, etc....
We must Practice Excellent Handwashing!! Things like RSV or the Stomach Flu could land Maccoy in the hospital on a ventilator fighting for his life so please understand we aren't trying to be rude we are a just looking out for our Sweet Baby.
If you want to do something for Maccoy you can PRAY FOR HIM!!! If you have questions please feel free to ask!!
