Wow! All this stuff for one little munchkin!

She is out!

Hua Hua is in the Pediatric Cardio ICU and is doing nicely.

The Dr was able to close the hole and did not leave a hole in the patch for "pop off" as planned but created another small defect to allow "pop off pressure".

She came off bypass and heart began again well.

They closed the chest and she was ready to be moved to PICU.

She is still intubated and sedated but the Anesthesiologist said she was doing very well and was already weaning her off the Nitric Oxide by the 10s. They had originally thought she would stay on N.O. for days. In fact he said they could wean her off more quickly but she might panic and pull out her lines. So that is a good sign!


  1. Praying that all continues to go well and everything is successful!

  2. Praise God for the good report. Did this fix the Pulmonary Hypertension or is that another surgery?

  3. I am just reading about the surgery tonight. So glad that the surgery went well and the Hua Hua is responding in a positive way. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. What a strong little precious girl! Oh just crying and giving thanks for how well she is doing. LORD, Keep her in your gentle healing care!
    Can't wait to see her as she recovers and strengthens!!! Still praying for those lungs! Nothing is to hard for the LORD!
