Our prayers were answered....Option #1 it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This picture is Reid calling his brother to say, "Guess what "Da" I'm coming home, I don't need another surgery after all!!" 

Our prayers were answered...miracles do happen! We got option #1 after all! The team of doctors met today in regards to how they should proceed with Reid's care. After reviewing yet another echo performed yesterday, the team was now in 100% agreement that they felt the echo looked very similar to the one in the operating room, and called the surgery successful once again. It is not a complete perfect fix, as with any surgery when you close certain things up and tighten valves it often reveals weaknesses in other areas, which is what was the case here with Reid's heart surgery. But, today "The Foremans"  heard the words we had prayed so earnestly for..."Your discharge papers are being processed."

We are so thrilled...we hardly know what to do with ourselves. Actually number one on our list is to catch up on sleep...so we are snuggling our boys in with us to watch a movie and to call it a good day, a fantastic day...a day of blessings! Thank you so much for all of your prayers, thoughts, encouragement, and care for our little 2 foot 2 inch charmer! And charmer he was...as we pushed the metal button on the wall to open the PICU doors and walk on through for hopefully the last time, Reid was waving back at a group of staff who were waving right back. He melted quite a few hearts there as his mended. :)
