They did a very thorough Echo ultrasound, and Dr. Chris said his mitral valve looks great, his tricuspid valve is still leaking, but minimally, and doing much better with the new valve. He also said we may not have to replace this valve until he is a teen! That would be such a great gift!
His bandage came off completely today, and Dr. Chris said his incision looks great and all of his wounds are healing nicely. It takes my breath away every time I see his chest. Lincoln was very distraught over it. He said it is yucky and he doesn't like it. It was devastating to hear him say that. He has been through so much, and I do hope as it heals and doesn't look so raw, he can be proud of it as a symbol of the tough little dude he is. A scar that tells his story and what a miracle he really is.
This mom is very excited for no more sponge baths, and he can take a real bath tomorrow! I can hardly wait. We still cannot lift him underneath the arms for two more weeks, but he is doing great! Thank you for your prayers and positivity! Xoxo
