Good News

The day has gone very well.  Douglas’s arterial switch procedure started around 8 am and finished around 3 pm.  The doctor said that everything went very well – his heart is pumping on his own again, and all of his vitals are great.  We are waiting to get a chance to see him in the Pediatric ICU.  There was a bit of a complication with fluid around the heart, so we have to wait a bit longer.  We’re not worried about the fluid at all, though.

Also, Jenny has been discharged, and we’re going to get to go home tonight for the first time since Tuesday.

It’s been a very good day.
