One step closer to seeing our little honey!
The surgeon finally came to talk to us (thank you for your prayers and scripture reminders)!!! Grace is being moved to the CICU now and, Lord willing, we will be able to see her in about an hour. The surgery went well and the Dr is pleased with how it went. He said they have been messing with the Pulmonary band for the past hour and that's what took so long. The Pulmonary band is basically a string like thing around the Pulmonary Artery (to restrict blood flow) and it is tough for them to judge how tight to make it. It needs to be loose enough so that she can grow into it some, but not too tight (it really is an art). Long story short, our little Gracie Doo is stable and for that we are beyond grateful. They plan to keep her fully sedated overnight to give her body a chance to heal and they will continue to monitor her closely. We have certainly felt ALL of your prayers! THANK YOU!!! Please continue to pray for a quick and seamless recovery and for the left ventricle and mitral valve to GROW, GROW, and GROW some more!
