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