I have been so nervous about this surgery and I am so glad it is over! He still has several months of recovery, but knowing this is behind us is such a relief, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted.
It does look like he is going to be in the hospital for about a week and I am prepared to stay here with him most of that time. He might even be able to move out of the PICU by tomorrow night or Thursday morning. He is in a shared room with two other cardiac babies, so I can't stay in the room with him overnight. We are staying in a hotel tonight, but I hope that he does well enough that he can move out to the Pediatric floor by tomorrow night so I can stay in his room.
I haven't been very hungry the past few days, but I am starving now. I am going to head down to the cafeteria and see if I can find something to eat, I could use a nap too!
Thanks for all of the lovely prayers and support.
