Surgery ( 4th of jan )

Hi All,

Well I had my PDA duct\valve closed by surgery today at 5:30pm ( was supposed to be 1pm) and it took just over 2 hours to complete. Apparently the actual surgery part only took about 45 mins but the setup and anesthetic and things took a lot of the other time. I'm pleased to report that it all went well and it has been successfully closed. I am pretty tired so will be sleeping most of the next couple of days, but I did manage to be awake when Mummy and Daddy came to visit me after. They said how proud of me they were and that I had been a very good boy which made me happy.

Thank you very much to everyone who has been sending me well wishes and praying for me, it is very appreciated. And Also a big thanks to all the staff doing the procedure and who always look after me so well. I will try not to set too many alarms off tonight.

It is now just a wait and see if my lungs respond well enough with less fluid going through them to get me off the ventilator in the next couple of Weeks.

So I will love you and leave you now and update you on my progress in a couple of days.

With love from Mitchell

Hi Mitchell, you are a very brave little boy. You have grown heaps since you were first born. I hope you grow fast and I bet you can't wait to go home with your mummy and daddy and get to check out all your stuff and your bedroom (you'll propably sleep in mummy & daddys bedroome first). Me and my family wish you all the best and hope know that you will bring heaps of joy into your families life. You are just gorgeous!!
