Saturday night update. 7.25 pm

Samuel continues to hit all the marks that they have set for him.  He is eating like a champion and is loving time with Laurel and I.

The nurses are openly talking about him going home tomorrow,  assuming that his levels all remain where they are now and climb now.

When the valve was narrow, his heart had to work harder than normal.  The balloon catheterization opened his pulmonary valve and corrected this and allowed blood to flow correctly. Because the valve was narrow, the right ventricle had worked harder than normal. Now that it is repaired it will take a few weeks to allow the right ventricle to return to its normal workload.

The doctors are confident in a life with no restrictions, all  activities are open to him.

We continue to pray for his discharge tomorrow
