Tetralogy of Fallot Fact Sheet
What is tetralogy of Fallot?
birth defects in the heart.(fuh-LOE) is a combination of four different
A healthy heart is a strong, muscular pump that pushes blood through the circulatory system to carry oxygen and nutrients to the body. The heart has four chambers -- two on the right and two on the lef. Blood is pumped through these chambers and regulated by valves that open and close like tiny doors, so that blood can move in only one direction.
After its trip through the body to deliver oxygen, blood is a blue color because it’s no longer oxygen-rich. The blue blood returns to the heart through the right chambers and is pumped through the pulmonary artery into the lungs. In the lungs, it picks up more oxygen and becomes bright red. It then goes back through the pulmonary vein to the left chambers and is pumped through the aorta and out into the body again.
If your child has tetralogy of Fallot, it means the following defects are present:
Ventricular septal defect (VSD): This is a hole in the wall between the heart’s right and (pumping chambers).
Overriding aorta: This means the aorta is located above the ventricular septal defect, to the right of where it should normally be.
Pulmonary valve stenosis: This is a narrow place in the pulmonary valve (between the and pulmonary artery) that forces the heart to pump harder to push blood through it.
Right ventricular hypertrophy: Because the heart must work so hard to pump blood through the narrowed pulmonary valve, the muscle wall of the right ventricle may become enlarged and weakened.
Together, these four defects reduce blood flow to the lungs and allow oxygen-poor (blue) blood to be pumped out to the whole body. As a result, the body does not have enough oxygen to meet its needs, and breathing becomes difficult.
We Will Get Through this!! He will be okay! I know it! God wouldn't have given me this beautiful sweet baby if he wasn't going to be okay!! I pray this everyday!! I love you soooooo much Maccoy! Your going to be fine!! It will be hard but you are my fighter and Daddy and I will be right here with you fighting for you!! Together we will get through this! Stronger than ever before!

I feel sorry for Clint right now. You see I got lucky to marry a man with the gift at being Mr.Fix it or maybe you call it being a tight a** and not wanting to pay somebody to do something he can figure out how to do. I mean anything from laying carpet, to plumbing to electrical, to drywall and right now he is a HVAC man. A few weeks ago he tore into our duct work in the basement to fix it so that the ceiling won't be so low when he gets it done, and well it isn't done and we can't turn our heat on until it's put back together so sick,fever,flu and all he is trying to get it done so we can turn our heat on cause it is really cold out!! Poor Guy!!
Also this week we were told that Cavin is color blind? Not sure if we believe it or not? I took him for his annual eye exam and this is what they found? My girlfriends husband is color blind and she says it comes from the maternal side? Not sure if either of my grandpa's suffer from this so I will need to ask them? So of course just another thing to worry about I know it's not a huge issue but of course it will cause some problems in school.
So the count is at 3 sick, 3 have had it and 3 may still be getting it?? Keep your fingers crossed and prayers coming that if Cayne and Maccoy do get this crap it is very mild for both of them!!
