The Best So Far
We had been home around thirty-six hours before we had to turn around and head back to Peoria. Make no mistake, this was not a trip full of concern but a mere post-op check-up.
I swear that Vada knows the hospital. She knows when we walk inside, where we are. Her demeanor changes, just like it did when we came home.
She was pretty laid back but a little cautious of the onlookers and of the blue and white coats walking around her.
She had lab work and a chest Xray done today and then we met with the Surgeon. He said that her labs were wonderful and the Xray was the best of Vada's that he had seen so far! He reduced the diuretic and stopped the medication to help boost her potassium. We will see him again in five weeks.
Our visit to OSF lasted about four hours but there is not much to say except our little Heart Hero is doing great!
Thank you to everyone who prayed for her. Your prayers helped make her strong. God was and is with her all of the time but was most defiantly was felt the day of her surgery and throughout her stay in the hospital!
