Talon's Surgery

At Talon's first check up the doctor found a hear murmur. They did an

echocardiogram on him and a doctor in Boise said he had what they call Pulmonary Stenosis. The pulmonary artery was narrower in on spot creating

turbulance and making the Valve not work quite right and making the pressure gradient off. So we went up to Boise and on the 8th they put a balloon catheter

on his heart to stretch the narrow part back to it's normal size.

Everything went really well. The procedure took 3 hours and he was out of the hopsital by the end of the day. He is doing great.

We are happy that it wasn't anything more serious and that they have

the technology to fix it so easily!
