Another day, another open chest surgery. In case you've lost count, this is number four in three weeks (and number three in the past week). He came back after a couple hours and is stable...intubated...sedated...and not bleeding.
Starting tomorrow, we'll need to restrategize and it will probably involve not running Heparin and monitoring his Berlin Heart extremely closely for clots. Changing out a pump from time to time is preferable to cracking Eddie's chest over and over again.
We're all very tired but grateful he's back in our hands.
