Post Surgery - Day 1

As the old saying goes "No news is good news". Scott had a very uneventful day in the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit). His vital signs are good and everything seems to be working as expected. The doctors and nurses are all amazed at how well he is doing. The doctors come by, look at the charts, nod their heads and then move along. It's the best 'boring' we have ever felt. He still has lots of tubes and wires but the plan is to start removing them slowly tomorrow, starting with this ventilator.

The excited news of the day was that a television crew came in to do segment on cardiac care here at Children's Hospital Oakland and they featured Scott and Mindy. We'll let you know when it airs. Mindy had the night shift last night so I'm on tonight. - Phil

Dear Mindy, Phil, Will and Scott,

I just heard that Scott was born and about his surgery. It sounds like it went well. This must be a strange strange time, a time out of time. We're all thinking of him and you folks from here in Ann Arbor. We're sending healing thoughts. Scott is going to come through. We know it. He has you for fighting fearless folks.
