Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers today! I'm sorry for the lack of updates but things moved really quickly after my last update and I got pretty busy with surgeon, Luke and just wanting to come back to see her. As far as surgery, it went very well! We were really happy with the results. Everything she needed and we wanted got done! She was able to receive a 20 mm conduit which is adult sized! She also got new biventricular leads, new pacemaker generator and Dr. Galatowicz was able to remove the right muscle bundling! We came back to see her and she was alert but very thirsty. They only want to give a tiny sponge soaked in a bit of water so as she does not feel sick from all the anesthesia. Slowly she progressed to ice chips and now to about an ounce at a time. She even got to bite a cracker. I'm so surprised she is happy and talking some. She gave me a few half smiles and told me she loved me. Felt so great to see and here that on this first day. Her nurse commented she had never seen anybody smile so soon after surgery. :) She has been calm and such a sweetie, asking for things politely. Her strength and courage are truly amazing. Although we are extremely grateful and relieved we are cautiously optimistic things will continue to progress smoothly. We've had setbacks before and have met others here going through them. We are hoping and praying we are spared this time and can slide out of here quickly with no bumps in the road. So please continue with prayers for a smooth night and recovery. Tomorrow is big day with hopefully lots of progress in removing lines etc. thanks again for all your prayers, love and support! It is almost one in the morning here so hoping to get a few minutes of sleep before morning rounds.
