In other news, we finally got a room at the Ronald McDonald house just one block away from the hospital. We're so excited to be there and have a consistent and luxurious place to stay till we fly home. WOW, what an amazing place. They couldn't be any nicer, or more accomodating and we feel so lucky to have a room there. We just got the tour and can't believe how nice everything is. We have a sleep number queen sized bed, a large beautiful room, we received a hand stitched quilt and stuffed frog for Davis, they have HUGE beautiful granite topped kitchens we can use, free food/snacks/keurig coffee, game room, craft room, lots of laundry facilities, and they also provide soap/shampoo/lotion etc if we need it. Honestly, I can't say enough about how nice everything there is and how excited we are to be staying there.
Lastly, the X-ray below shows Davis's chest pre-surgery (on the right) and post surgery (on the left). I think it's fairly obvious that his heart is now MUCH smaller and his lungs can actually expand now.
|Image on the left is from this morning. Heart is lighter color in chest, lungs are dark. You can see the wires holding together his sternum and all the tubes, pacemaker (bottom left) still in place.|
