The results are back from Witt's echo. The only negative at all is that the mitral valve is leaking like it was before surgery. BUT the tricuspid valve is doing great and the pressure in the right chamber is totally normal!! Also there is no stenosis with the mitral valve! It appears that Witt being so sick was just caused by fluid overload. That's not completely definitive but it seems more likely now that that's what happened. The next few weeks are still really crucial as Witt is weaned off or way down from everything that they were doing to get him back to this place of health. Witt is on a very high dose of diuretics, pain medicines still, breathing treatments, and the CPAP. The cardiologist said that they are going to wean him very slowly and begin other things like feeds very slowly. Nobody has mentioned a time frame...Witt will be in the PICU for some time still. Right now I don't care where he feet aren't touching the ground anyway!!!

Mel finally was able to hold Witt!
