This is certainly an Easter weekend unlike any we've ever had! The walk to the hospital this morning was very quiet, as were the halls in the hospital for the first part of the day.
Today was a good day. No real issues arose today. Nate's picc line came out today...a good sign! It sounds like the dr's want to discharge this weekend...both an relieving and scary thought!
One of the cardiologists that is now on rotation and who was in today, sat down and talked about 'where we are going' with all this. It was a little discouraging, only because we're feeling like things are looking up as we prepare for coming home. He tried explaining the bigger picture. He said he wasn't telling me these things to scare me, but rather to demonstrate how concerned they still are about Nate. He's not convinced the 'double switch' is the best option, and voiced concerns about replacing the leaky valve and the more frequent surgeries that would require. The third option was a new heart. At this point there are no clear answers or timeline for future treatment, aside from close monitoring right now until intervention is required. He did say, however, that 'miracles do happen', so that continues to be my prayer!
Wishing you a weekend filled with family and hearts full of thanksgiving as we remember and celebrate Jesus' love for us!
