Home Again and Waiting . . .

Eddie is back home and doing very well. His fever broke early Saturday morning and his potassium levels quickly came back in line. His cardiologists thought one of his meds (Enalapril) may have been a contributing factor to his potassium spike so they've discontinued it permanently. Woo-hoo! One more drug off the list bringing us to six total:
We are still waiting for the biopsy results. After talking to the Heart Center yesterday, it may be Wednesday before we get clear line of sight. Fingers crossed.

Big thanks again to Eddie's team of cardiologists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and coordinators for making a nerve-wracking process manageable. As you can see from the picture, everyone loves Eddie and, for a parent, it's so comforting to see your child taken into the OR in the anesthesiologist's arms rather than on a gurney. Thank you Seattle Childrens!
