Alex no longer has a PDA!

After 4 hours of travel time total, and 3 hours at the hospital, with only 30 minutes of that time being the ECHO, we learned that Alex does not have a PDA, the surgery worked!

We were also told that the septum and his aorta are misaligned.

Basically the problem this could cause is a blocked aorta. However, the doctor who is rather good at what he does, is not concerned with the misalignment at this point. He wants to see us back in a year.

I am a little sad. Here I was hoping we would say goodbye forever.

Perspective though............

Alex is not sick. We are not in and out of the hospital, thriving and he is growing like a weed.

We will take what we can get. I keep hoping neurosurgery will discharge us. And I get nervous every time we go to them. But you're so right, right NOW our kids are incredibly healthy and happy. That is just amazing!

You are so right, perspective. Sometimes it's just a bitter pill for me to swallow...glad his PDA is closed.
