Just a brief post to let you all know that Juliet's surgery went very well today. There were no surprises and she handled it all beautifully. Thanks to the doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, RTs etc for a smooth day. The surgeon put 2 very small titanium clips into her heart. He actually gave us one as a "souvenir" after the surgery.
Juliet is back on the ventilator for a few days, but she is very comfortable and able to rest. This will help to speed her recovery. We know how fiesty she is.... In a few days, we will be able to get a better idea of how much the surgery helped.
Thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers today!
