Out of Surgery

We just talked to the surgeon and he said that the surgery went great.  His blood pressure is good, he is not requiring the pacemaker to maintain a good rhythym and his oxygen saturation is 99%.  Granted, that is on oxygen, but his saturations have not been that high since he was two days old - even when he was on oxygen.  Funny how having all of your blood go through your lungs makes your oxygen levels go up.

The plan right now is to try to fast-track him which means they are hoping to get him off the ventilator in the next six hours or so.  That would be good because I am guessing he is not going to like the tube in his throat.  Hopefully, the next few days will go smoothly and I will be able to snuggle and comfort him when he needs it!

Here are some pictures from before surgery:
