It has been 7 hours since we left our Gracie girl with the anesthesiologist and all the repairs have been made. Her tricuspid valve has been fixed and is not leaking much now, the sano has been taken down, and the Glenn has been done. We are still waiting for them to be able to close her, there is still quite a bit of bleeding that they are still trying to control and then they will attempt to close.
Though Annie has been the one giving us periodic updates, I ran into Bonnie and she said that Grace will probably stay longer than most because of how long they have had her in the OR. But ultimately it all depends on Gracie and we all know she does things in her own way and timing.
I am ready to see my baby, it has been too long!!! I'm just hoping that they will be able to stop the bleeding and close her up soon. Hopefully we will be talking to Dr. Kourtas soon and then only have to wait 45 more minutes to see her. All I know is they better hurry because I'll be more than ticked if I can't see her till after shift change.
Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and positive vibes, they have been felt so much and though it has been a long day, with several bumps we have felt peace and comfort. We will update again after we get to see Gracie.
