Well Christmas came and went, but at least here we had a very white Christmas. We had a very wonderful day celebrating the birth of Christ, and of course Santa came. My sisters were very excited to see presents under the tree, but as for me, I really didn't know what to think-beings my first Christmas and all. I have attached a couple photos of me with my new toys. Also, I gave my mommy and daddy a gift, but so far it has lasted one day. On Saturday I ate from a bottle for the first time since my surgery, not a lot, but enough to get everyone really excited.
I also have some news from my cardiologist. The third week in January he will present my case to the group. They will then collectively decide the next course of action. It is possible we will have to travel to Seattle for me to have a heart cauterization and then travel back home while the doctors devise a plan. They could also set a date for my surgery, do the heart cauterization as part of my presurgery appointments and hope my pressure is down. Either way they need to test the pressure level in my lungs (pulmonary hypertension) to determine if it is safe for me to have surgery. If the levels are there, then we wait, if not they will move forward.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a prosperous New Year!
Please remember to say a prayer for me.
Love, Drew and Family.
