Will had his follow up at Children's today. I was very nervous about his weight gain, because if he wasn't where they wanted he was going to be readmitted. We should have known, however, that Will always pulls through. His weight was up, his Sats and blood pressure were good and the doctors were extremely happy once again.
So today we said adios to the hospital where our son spent his first precious weeks and are ready to head back home to Tennessee. We won't be back until it is time for his cath and stage 2 surgery (late summer/early fall).
I guess this ends the first chapter of our adventure to heal Williams's heart. Unfortunately, we still have a long road ahead of us. He has done so well being "home" (at my parents' house) this week, and we are so confident he will continue to thrive and push through. In the meantime we are going to continue to enjoy every second with our amazing little super hero. He is such a calm, alert and happy baby, who seems so wise beyond his years already. There will be much more to learn still from our little man.
Next step: conquering our interstage period!
