Fine and darn didlie dandy!

Just a quick note to say that Alex did fine today.. It is just our luck that when we are early they are late and when we are late they are running right on time...So we ended up not going in until noon.. They said it would take about and hour and a half.. When it was 2:45 and we still hadn't heard anything I panicked until they said it was due to wanting to get a really good echo... I could tell they tried a few times to get an IV... He is so chubby that it was hard... He has a nice foam roll on him right now... this helps so that nothing touches his ouchy.... We haven't heard about the echo because Dr. Su wasn't there today so I am sure he will give us a call when he gets a chance to review it... He is being a very good boy and doesn't seem to be in too much pain.. He did fine coming out of sedation. Well they actually did him with general because of his history with LM and reflux..We met a new anesthesiologist today Dr. Clark then his other one Dr. Hannon came in to say hi. Dr. Wallis did his Circ.(very nice MD) for all you other little heart guys that are doing this in the future, we highly recommend him.. We ran into our heart friends(the Pettits) tried to see the Brimleys.. I chatted a few minutes with a new friend Hollie... and got to see some of our fave people... Bonnie, Heather, Jerry, Sonja, well you know you are all our favorites... Just an all around great day... Glad to be in and out... It is so little stress compared to a heart surgery....

I'm glad Alex's surgery went well and he is doing fine. I hope the results from the echo are good.

I haven’t checked the blogs for a while and it looks like I’m really out of touch. I’m glad things are going well for you guys. I have needed to get Ashton in to see his doctor, so I will have to get the scoop from Glenda when I talk to her.

Take Care,
Nathan
