My, Oh My

Gotta make this quick, because we'll be called down to ICU any minute:

This is the best possible scenario that could have been. They repaired/replaced 2 leaky valves in Bailey's heart and did the Maze procedure which is intended to keep her heart in rhythm. The best part is that no VAD was used. The night is still early, and it's kind of scary to be so happy . . . but we're happy.

They also took of 7 litres of fluid from her belly. She now has ribs! We haven't seen her ribs in nearly a year. I can't wait for her to wake up so I can tell her she's skinny and she doesn't have a VAD.

Dr. T said she may or may not be woken up and taken off the ventilator tonight, but her pressures all look really good and he was happy. Dr. D was happy too. Everybody's happy. God is happy.

Love you all!

Yea!!! Our prayers have been answered today. We all have been praying all day and will need a good sleep tonight after no sleep last night. WOW we are so happy to hear how well things went and if Dr. T and Dr. D are happy that speaks for itself. So glad they were able to drain fluid from her too. We all know how important that is to her. I knew God would shine on us all today and reward our prayers. Thank you God!! We love you all.
