Thank you all so much for your kind words and prayers for my son's heart surgery.
I wanted to update everybody on how it went.
We went in Friday morning. We had to be there at 7:30 am. We then got stuck waiting in the waiting room for 4 hours because the doctor had to do an emergency pace maker insertion! Those 4 hours were tough because of all of the anticipation. My husband and I did our best to make our son laugh and take his mind off of things. They were playing Clubhouse Disney shows in the waiting room, so we made fun of all the shows and kept my 19 year laughing hysterically.
At about 11:30, they called his name and we went up to the Cath Lab. They put the IV in and then wisked him away. They let us go into the Cath Lab to say goodbye. I was fine up until this point. I'm not good with goodbyes and I lost it as I told him I loved him and that everything would be ok. Good thing is, they had already given him the anethesia, so he could have cared less! lol!!! He doesn't remember it at all.
About an hour later, a nurse came out to tell us the procedure had started. Another half an hour, she came again and said they had successfully found the pathway that they needed to ablate! She said it was a good sign that they found it so fast. Another hour went by and she came out again and said they were ablating the pathway. Next out, the doctor came and told us that it had been successful!!! They were applying pressure to the needle insertion points (important because they went in through an artery... so they had to make sure the bleeding was controlled). Another hour went by and they wheeled him to recovery!
He woke up in recovery in a fairly good mood. He had a feeling of pressure in his chest, so the nurse kept doping him with morphine! At this point, he grabbed my hand, told me he loved me and thanked me for being such a great mom. He did the same with my husband. Of course, this made me cry, but they were happy tears!
He spent the night in the hospital and came home the following morning. He is now feeling almost 100% except for some slight pain where the needles went in. He's even back at school!
The doctor says that he is nearly 100% sure he fixed the problem. But, sometimes the problem can re-occur, so he needs to be tested again in 2 months.
Thank you God and thank you to all of you who helped me through this with your kind words of support!!!
