DH got brave and called the doctors to see where were at with a plan. The cardiologist has been talking with the surgeon. From the sounds of things, I do believe I was correct about them not really knowing what exactly to do. Just nervous and trying to give it to God.
"just"? Man, you both have every right to be nervous!
Glad DH took the initiative though. It is a tough situation for the doctors and surgeons. They're only human.

Yeah we probably should have called before, however, I was terrified. I told DH I would NOT be the one to call. I had even talked to the pedi about it. I'm actually glad she stays out of some of this. She treats him for the everyday things I need her too. But she even said she didn't blame me and understood my fear. I'm just glad they are talking and realizing something needs to be done. I just am very apprehensive about the S word. For obvious and not so obvious reasons. I don't think I need to explain the obvious ones. But I know Eli's heart and right now he's really stable, but once they do something to fix the blood flow to the brain that's going to change. Not necessarily immediately, but sooner rather than later. And THAT scares me just as much. Plus I'm concerned about what they might end up doing. I'm trying not to think about that part though (and doing a fairly good job if you ask me or anyone that knows me IRL). But in adults with this issue they would do heart bypass. The problem is where they would do the heart bypass is where one of his defects is and he no longer has those vessels, plus his age. So I think that is why they are not sure what to do. I am just keeping the drs and surgeons in my prayers for them to make the right decision. I'd rather wait a bit longer and have them make the right decision than do something just to do it and it be the wrong one.
