Disclaimer....not posted by Shannon.....she made me say!!!!
Derrick is out and doing well. The Dr. met with us and his pressures are ideal for surgery now. They did notice that he has an abnormal run of atrial tachycardia. During the procedure they caught it a few times. She said that he is stable during these runs and that it can be common after heart surgery. However, we are going home with a Holter monitor and D will probably end up on medicine to correct his rate.
He seems to be much happier this time than the last. He has eaten well for him already!!! He still can't move around for another hour or so. Shannon is holding him now, which they said we couldn't do, because he was moving around and reaching for her. I am sure she is so upset about that, not!!! So you will have to forgive me about this post. No glam, just the facts...I told Shannon not to yell at me about the look of the post.
Thanks for all your prayers! We really needed them and still continue to need them. We will probably be having surgery within the next few weeks as our surgeon will be leaving at the end of January.
We will update later....the computer is dying. Thanks again for all of your support!!!!
