Mary is done with surgery! We are right now waiting for her to make her way up to the PICU. The surgical nurse came out and told us that she came off the bypass machine perfectly. Her heart started right back up, as if it had never missed a beat :) Also, they were able to save her pulmonary valve! Praise God! He has blessed us, again and again. She may still need a replacement in the future, but for now, this is the best news possible. Soon she should be in her room, and we can kiss her chubby cheeks. Hopefully she will come off the ventilator soon, and then recovery happens quickly after that. Thank you for your many prayers and messages of support!
