I'm still in shock... we're already home from surgery! A longer post is coming soon, with some pictures that will bring a huge smile to your face, but I wanted to give the good news now!
More details to come too (sorry, I'm completely whooped and needing to crawl into bed), but in general the surgery was a huge success! Not only does the patch in Samuel's heart look great - no leaks and the pressures look good, but his lungs held up beautifully. In fact, his lungs acted "normal" :) This is amazing!!!
We came home yesterday, way before anyone anticipated, and are settling back into life at home. DB and I are anxious for his chest to heal, but Samuel is a complete rock star and is handling everything with his usual easy-breezy style :) In fact, to prove his incredibleness, as if that was necessary, he walked out of the hospital yesterday... walked... on his own! Who does that three days after open heart?! Go Samuel :)
