Happy thoughts for your little girl and your family man! Having a child that has endured multiple surgeries already, I know it's tough. But just stay positive!

As a father of a little angel as well I could not start to imagine what your feeling. I hope everything goes well with her and I pray for her! Keep us all updated how this goes!

I think you mentioned she had a lot of confidence about this and I have to say that's something most children don't have. As long as you know that then it should be less worrisome. I wish your daughter well and your family too. Be strong and try not to be to worried

This is going to be a rollercoaster of a day for you. It will start by being one of the hardest and will end by being of the the best.

Hello Everyone. I am back at the Hotel Room with my other two daughters and wanted to provide the update on the day. Surgery was predicted to be 3-4 hours and ran well over 5 1/2 hours. The "Overtime" portion of the surgery presented all kinds of fears in my mind, but thankfully it only took the surgeon longer due to a hole between the two sides of the heart that he did not see on the Echiocardiogram. The Doctors and Staff at John Hopkins are out of this world talented while maintaining an incredible bedside manner.

When we got called to see my Daughter in the Pediatric ICU I was really frightened. I was happy to see that she looked so much better than I had anticipated. After being pale all of her life she has some color. The first few hours in the ICU were frantic because they were trying all types of things to get her vital signs where they needed to be. By 9:00pm everything had improved other than her Hemoglobin which will require a Transfusion if it remains in this range. Her bumps along the way were described as minute versus the average Pediatric Heart Recovery. She is expected to have to stay another 4-6 days.

I have felt very fortunate for all of the people praying for my Daughter. She has been a blessing since before she was born (I won't bore you with this story). Thank you again to everyone for taking the time to extends kind words, prayers, etc.

As far as this being one of my best days ever, you betcha the new lease on life that my daughter has is so exciting for her. She is already looking forward to being able to keep up with her friends.

Relieved to hear the updated good news jetson. Those extra hours waiting must have been really rough, such a relief when you finally get to see her though and she was doing fine.

I've been checking the thread every so often to see if an update came. It has, and I am relieved.
