Sweet Jack is just resting peacefully at the moment. His blood pressure is a little higher than they would like it so they are keeping him pretty sedated for a while longer and trying to get that under control. I can tell that he is coming around a little though because he's sucking on his ventilator tube like a binky and licking his lips when they wet them down with the flavorful little pink sponges.
Dr. Kaza said that his heart function looks great, his valves aren't leaking, and he was able to fix his narrowed pulomary artery so we are so happy about all of that. The next 24 hours are critical, but he's doing great. Dr Kaza did a Glenn surgery last week and they were able to go home in just 4 days. We like the sound of that and have told Jack that he is welcome to follow a similar plan, especially since we tacked on a few bonus days at the beginning.
We are just so happy to have this surgery behind us. Now we can begin healing and move forward.
