Thursday status

John is stable and his cardiac output is good. The care team is pleased with his heart’s function at this time. 

John has been coming out of anesthesia yesterday and it’s wearing off. It’s time for lines to come out one by one. A steady stream of therapists, specialists have been performing assessments and helping John recover. Some test results they like, some they don’t and that leads to more tests and more consultatations. I said previously that I won’t post every hill on the roller coaster ride but the last 24 hours ohave been the steep climbs and the sinking feelings of all the possibilities his caregivers must consider. So please continue to pray for his recovery. John and our family do appreciate your support. 

It took me an hour to type this because I have been stopping to talk with John’s care team. John had his first food post-surgery: chocolate pudding! 

People have asked how are we doing. Last night Scott stayed overnight. I went home to shower and sleep. So we are holding up. 

There have been many other questions but I will have to answer them later with another update. We appreciate all of your kind words.
