Dane had an echo to day and they have discover the the infection had eaten a hole from the right atrium through to the left ventricle. But they are more worried about the area around the aortic valve, it has deteriorated very badly and is threatening to rupture, which would be fatal.
It has became very apparent that Dane will eventually have to have surgery the problem with that is with the bleeds to the brain, the brain really needs 6 months to heal. The drugs used for open heart surgery thin the blood, by doing that it would unclog the bleeds in the brain and Dane would suffer a huge bleed out in the brain which of course would be fatal.
Fortunately for Dane he was 'clinically' coping very well.
