Mom is holding Charlotte’s hand, so Dad is filing this post.
Since the last post, Dr. Backer (CV Surgery) and Dr. Prisbello (sp? – Anesthesia) came and talked to us. Both looked relaxed, actually, they both had as large a grin on their faces as you would expect surgeons to grin. In brief, the operation went well, very well.
We’re now in the PICU where a beautiful little Charlotte, hooked up to the machinary we have seen before (and a couple of new devices that did not exist 2 years ago… can you imagine?), is starting her (rapid) recovery back to her former self. While heavily sedated, Charlotte has started to wiggle her fingers, wave her hand and open her eyes.
All is as well as can be right now, probably even better. Rumor has it that the breathing tube may come out tonight (Yeay!). Mom will be back on blogging really soon. Dad is settling in for the night…
Thanks for listening, thanks for monitoring… It means the world to us.
