    Many of you know me as Mokey Fraggle, Luna or Venus. My 2 year old son, Gavin, will be having open heart surgery in Boston on June 22. He was born with a congenital heart defect and has had a long road of surgeries and procedures. We are finally at the last big surgery for our little guy.Today was the first day of tests that included an EKG,xrays,bloodwork and ultrasound and tomorrow he will have ct scan,and Echo. He is doing well so far, but like most of us, he is not a big fan of the hospital. I will keep everyone updated here unless someone has a better place to post this. I have many friends in the UO community and I thought this would be the best way to keep everyone updated. We appreciate everyones prayers and support while we travel through this difficult time.
    Thank you,
    Mokey Fraggle

    thank you everyone for your prayers. day 2 of tests went well although there are still some concerns over a diaphragm issue but they wont know the extent until they get into surgery and they will decide what to do then. No hospital visit today so we are going to go out and enjoy boston!

    we met with the surgean today. surgery is set for 12 tomorrow. The surgery will take about 5hrs and he will be on heart bypass for about 1 1/2 hrs. all tests look good as far as how the heart is doing for the surgery and they dont expect any surprises other then the diophram, they still are unsure of why its elevated on the right side and they will most likely have to staple the diophram down because for some reason it has moved up and is compressing his right lung but the are hopful they will be able to fix that at the same time they do the surgery. this is a link to what is heart condition is http://www.childrenshospital.org/az/Site508/mainpageS508P0.html

    so tomorrow is the day to pray! i will post a update after the surgery thank you everyone for your support!
