Surgery is done!
Praise God for Dr. Haw and his medical team. Lincoln's surgery was successful and he now has only a minor leak. We will have to continue monitoring his heart with Dr. Lecina throughout his life. However, Dr. Haw said good is better than perfect in cardiology, and his heart looks good. Dr. Haw said he has only seen five cases like Lincoln's heart in his career and only one in the U.S. He also said that had a younger surgeon operated, it would not have gone well. Now we wait to see him until he gets into PICU and see how he does under ventilation the next 24 hours. His biggest hurdles now are coming out of anesthesia and keeping his fluid levels normal around his heart. Please keep praying!!! Thanks again for everything. ❤
