SPENCER UPDATE – CAUTION, PHOTOS

Since I am sure some of Jane’s friends will want to see these, here are photos from the surgery and of the Melody Valve after it was removed.  Everyone else, before you scroll down just know that these are gross.  Spence now has a shiny new pig valve.

The photo above is of a Melody Valve when it is shiny and new.

Above are photos of the vale after removal.

Photos below are of his heart just before the Melody Valve was removed.    You can see some small bits of metal which are parts of the metal stint that holds the vale.
