Today started off with a "bang". Witt threw up everywhere in the waiting room before the echo cardiogram! It's really hard to determine what is actually causing him to throw up at this point. It is probably a combination of Motrin, feeding tube down his throat and a good gag reflex now! The doctors did cut back the Motrin dose slightly to 2ml 3 times a day. The good news is that his lungs look better which is amazing because he has thrown up several times over the last few days! Thank You, Lord! The fluid around Witt's heart is the same. If it stays at this level, he is cleared for surgery but the cardiologists want another echo next Monday before surgery. This means that the surgery will most likely have to be postponed for a day or 2 because it would be almost impossible to have another cardio evaluation and make the surgery scheduled for noon. The cardiologist will work all that out with the surgeon and call Melanie by tomorrow morning. The doctors believe the valve is the same but honestly the echo was short and really only evaluated the fluid around the heart.

Hanging outside on Mother's Day!
