Yep. Lickety split. We're home.
McKay is doing well tonight and we're gladly resting at home because they didn't really find much to do once they launched their little pleasure cruise inside his little circulatory system today.
Unfortunately, the cath wasn't able to tell us much about what's going wrong. On the bright side, it did show how much is going right. Dr. Gray called McKay "The poster child for the Glenn" operation. This means perfect pressures. Impeccable valves. Gorgeous pulmonary arteries. And no collaterals to speak of. Hmmm. Then why the ever-devolving crappy sats?
While we discussed many theories today, it's likely we won't know what's going wrong until a surgeon actually gets a good look at him. In other words, they'd have to open him up to know any more than they know now. And while we still need to have a good chit-chat with our cardio angel, that likely means there will be no putting off the Fontan. Little man needs some intervention fairly soon and they've done all they can do short of operating at this point.
I'll post some great pics of Mac's anatomy once I have a chance to scan them in tomorrow. I just fell down the stairs on my way to grab this computer. I'm going to take that as a sign that sleep is required--and soon. Until then, enjoy the pics of my cherub in recovery this afternoon. What mother of three busy boys gets five uninterrupted hours of cuddling? Today, I did. Praise be.
