We are home again after a long day at the hospital. We had a hard time deciding about whether to come back home or not, but we figured it would be much easier to entertain Zach at home for the weekend. One thing is for sure, we WILL be purchasing a car DVD player for the trip back!!!
Pre-op went very well and all is clear for surgery on Monday. Praise the Lord! Zach was such a brave boy during his vitals, EKG, echo, chest x-rays, and blood work (the worst of all). He flirted with all the nurses, as usual!
We have to be at the hospital at 5:30am (Ouch!!!) on Monday morning. They will take him back at around 7:30am (after a good dose of versed!) and they expect the surgery to take about 6 hours. He will be in PCICU for 2-3 days then on the floor for several days (a week to 10 days). He loved going to the playroom today, so hopefully he will be ready to get up and around so he can go play.
It is such a blessing to feel the prayers that all our friends and family are lifting up on our behalf. We have also been blessed with a wonderful place to stay while Zach is in the hospital. Our host family is so sweet and their bonus room is a haven.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
