Home sweet home

We were discharged yesterday morning from Children's and made it home safely around noon yesterday. How good to be home! Luke is doing wonderful — happy and healthy.

We have follow-up appointments set up next week with his cardiologist, as well as his pediatrician and dietician.

Here's a picture of Luke in his own jammies last night, ready to go to sleep in his own crib. I think he's happy to be home too.

We're going home!

We just got the thumbs up to go home this morning! Dr. Cohen looked at his chest x-ray, which was clear, looked at Luke and said with a smile on his face, "I'll see you in 8 kilo's." (That will put Luke at 30 pounds, where he needs to be for the Fontan, his final heart surgery.) We are now just waiting for our discharge papers and then we are OUTTA here!

We are sad to leave our new friends and some of our nurses, but couldn't be happier about getting Mr. Luke home — just in time for the Puyallup Fair =)

Our favorite Nurse Practitioner, Lara
