Update 7


We are so happy to report that R will be discharged tomorrow! He is a prized patient and has done every little thing that has been asked of him.

The cardiologist is extremely pleased with his progress and if nothing changes over the next 12-16 hours, we're outta here.

He will have to have several cardiologist visits over the next few weeks, but other than that, his heart is officially fixed. Once he is fully recovered, he will only need to visit the cardiologist once a year.  

You can tell he feels so much better already. His breathing is slow and regulated, and his color is great. It's a miracle to watch these little babies go through so much trauma and recuperate so quickly.

We can't wait to head home and get back to living a normal life. 

We're a little bruised and battered, but it's all worth it. We look forward resting, relaxing, and enjoying our HEALTHY family. It's going to be a wonderful Christmas -- R getting his heart fixed is the best gift we could ever receive.

We're so excited for everyone to get to know our little man. Your prayers and support got us through!

With his surgeon. (Yes. He's gorgeous AND he saves babies.)
