Heart Surgery Success

Other

Just an update for those who wished my son luck with his surgery.

The surgeon was able to do a full repair of his heart. We were warned that until he operated he didn't know if he could fix everything and he warned us there was a chance he might no survive the surgery. But after 12 hours of surgery his heart is fully repaired, he shouldn't need any future surgery and he is recovering better than expected. His doctors are amazed at the progress he has made after such complex surgery. We have to be cautious as he could still have a bad day but so far so good. He is such a wee fighter and my absolute superhero!

Thank you all for your best wishes.

Absolutely brilliant news to start the weekend with. If all of our wishes could help then the road ahead would be incredibly smooth for you as a family. Best news ever! Make sure you get some rest - guessing you are mentally whacked.

He has had so many prayers thoughts and well wishes that I truly believe they have helped all of us! We have been able to rest the last few days, which has definitely helped.

So relieved and grateful! Words can't describe how happy we are.

The NHS has been wonderful. Looked after him from the day he was born. His surgeons, all the nurses and the other staff who look after him are just wonderful, special people and I can't ever thank them enough for what they have given our family. The NHS should be celebrated.

Just another quick update. Our son was discharged from the hospital on Friday. Doctors couldn't believe how well he recovered. He is loving being back home and has loads more energy. He is eating everything in sight and keeping the formula companies in business with the amount of milk he is drinking now! He has put on loads of weight and is thriving. He is still on medication but hopefully only for another few months. Image
