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
