Two Ventricle Heart

No words can describe how I feel tonight. Zoey has a functioning two ventricle heart! Can you even believe that??? Such a miracle!!! She is doing awesome! The doctors and nurses keep telling me how great she looks...I realize this is from a medical, just after heart surgery stand point. Looking at her with that in mind I am sure she does look great...from a mother's stand point, she looks sad. As a matter of fact when I first saw her, I nearly passed out. Luckily I found a chair before I fell over. She will stay sedated tomorrow and possibly Friday as well.

She really has already made great progress though! When we first saw her she was on 100% oxygen and right now she 60% oxygen. They have had to tie her arms down because once her sedation meds would start wearing off at all, she would try grabbing the vent out of her mouth.

I don't have a way right now to post pics but I will tomorrow morning! Goodnight!
