So the surgeries for both Quinn and my cousins baby Sam are over. They both went very well. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. Sam just came out of his, so I will hear more about that later. But things sound like they went well. Quinn's went very well. The scan they did of his heart showed that the pressures in his ventricles have gone down since the stents. So that's positive. The cardiologist also mentioned that it looks like the arteries out of the heart look to be about the same size which is great because they were unable to place a stent in his left artery the last time he had his surgery. It looks like it has just widened on it own. The doctor has to see the actual data results but his initial opinion is that we can wait on Quinn's next round of surgeries until he is at least 18mths. That is much better than the possible 12 to 18 month time frame they initially predicted.
So here's our little man relaxing with Auntie and a magazine before his operation.
Playing a little.
Dressed and ready to go.
Hanging with grandma.
Immediately post surgery.
Just a couple of hours after. He was smiling and playing. Surgery! What Surgery? I guess today was harder on me. I'm still a little shell shocked. It just brings so much back to see him like that. When they called me back to the recovery room they told me just to follow the screaming and I would find him. I didn't even recognize his cries. I haven't heard him cry like that in months. And to see the needle and IV's again!!! Lets just say his veins haven't improved much. Ah well, this is him right now. So I guess all's well that ends well.
