Paul will have to have at least one more open heart surgery and other procedures in the catheter lab as he continues to grow. But, now – Paul is a very active and growing 6 year old boy. Thanks to Dr. Jonas and all of the doctors and nurses at Children’s National Medical Center – Paul is alive and thriving today.
“Paul may have more angioplasties (or tune-ups as his doctors call them). He may have another surgery eight to ten years from now, or if we’re lucky, technology may improve to a point that he might have indeed had his last open-heart surgery. Time will tell. But we’re not dwelling on all of that right now. We’re doing our best to focus on living and celebrating every smile!”
