Where is the patch

It is actually patching the hole in the diaphram. It is internal. They used the same incision as the original surgery to gain access. It took the longer because they called in a heart doctor to give his opinion. There is typically a protective covering in the chest cavity. Bayta has none. This is not critical to her survival. When any baby has a heart surger a hole is made inthe protective layer... With no higher risk of infection.
