Going Home

Matthew is going to be discharged from the hospital today.  He continues to do very well, and they have no reason to keep him here!

His heart rate was a little on the slow side, and his heart sounds were quiter than normal, so he had another echocardiogram today, just to make sure everything was o.k. and to rule out pericardial effusion (fluid build-up around the heart).  I don’t have the official word from the cardiologist yet, but the ultrasound tech said that everything looks great!  He said there is no sign of effusion, and his right heart function and pressures actually look better than on Friday’s ultrasound.  Hurray!

We will stay in Spokane for a few days, just to be safe, but it will be very nice to be out of the hospital so soon.  We never dreamed we would be discharged just 5 days after surgery!

Thanks again for all of the prayers, support, and hugs.  We know it is because of all the prayers that Matthew has done so well.

You are an incredible mom–you deserve it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing little Matthew with me for a few minutes–he is BEAUTIFUL!! What a sweetheart!

    Amy and Aaron, I hope you guys had a wonderful anniversary and were able to do something together, at least for a few minutes! What an awesome anniversary gift to be able to take your little one home the next day! 🙂 Aaron, wish I could have seen you, too, while I was up in Spokane, but know that ALL of you remain in my prayers–and the prayers of all kinds of people all over the place.

    Love you all! God bless!
