In and out....no problem. The doctors just came out to report a very successful surgery. Pacemaker is in and working. They set his ventricular rate at 90, so in the event his heart rate falls below 90, the pacemaker will kick in. The plan is to gradually increase the heart rate to pace around 120.
Max should be heading back up to the NICU in the next 20 minutes or so for recovery. They are telling us that we get to take him home as soon as he recovers, which could be as soon as tomorrow afternoon.
We truly can't thank you all enough for your continued prayers and for simply following the blog and sending us words of encouragement. This has been an exciting journey, but it's only the beginning....now we have to figure out how to raise a kid.
More photos to come this evening.
