My sweet boy is back in his room, sleeping like an angel. I can't tell you how relieved I am to have him back next to me! We talked to the cardiologist who said Drew did well and they got everything they needed to see. He said he got the needle in right away and injected the fentanyl before they inserted the catheter. They had to go through both his groin and his neck to see all the parts of his heart. And even though we're not getting our hopes up yet, he did say he didn't see a reason a repair couldn't be done. The doctor wants to get an echo before we leave and if they can't see well enough with that he'll want an MRI. He wants to get all the info we need to decide which surgery is best. He also said the pressure in his pulmonary artery is lower and that Drew is ready for surgery no matter which one they decide to do. So that's all good news.
Now he has to stay here for 6 hours for observation and he has to keep his legs straight that whole time. We're not even suppose to let him sit up to eat, he can only lift his head. That sounds like it will be difficult so I hope he sleeps most of that time. We have chicken nuggets and goldfish waiting so he has something he loves once he wakes up.
Here's a picture of my little guy resting.
Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers!
