-Once Frankie is 100% healed from his heart surgery, they will bring him in and consider his first repair surgery.
-Frankie has to have the "okay" from cardiology before any repair work can be done. Once his heart is fixed, that's out of the equation but his lungs will need to be very, very strong. When they start to put things back in, it will feel like he's had three Thanksgiving dinners and it will make him breath harder at first, until he's used to it.
-When will this be? Not until he's AT LEAST 2. We must remember, we are on Frankie time. And he needs a good amount of time to recover from his heart surgery.
-After Frankie's heart surgery, he should be able to grow much better since his heart wont be working over time. Frankie still needs to be larger to put things back in. He's still a little guy.
-It will take most likely 2 surgeries for him to be closed up. Definitely not just 1.
-Most likely have to use a "patch" to help close up his abdominal muscles.
All of this is good news. Let's get Frankie through this heart surgery, give him time to GROW LIKE A WEED! And then we can start working on his tummy! Which is knows now and will pat it when asked and it's extremely cute. That's it for now! Love you all! Here's a picture of him doing his usual.... Hamming it up!
