Prozac 2.0 - Heart Surgery

Wednesday morning we're taking the little guy down to the Children's hospital for the pre-op appointment, then provided everything checks out he's going under the knife Thursday morning. He'll be 3 months old the Monday after the op and in intensive care with tubes hanging out of him, so that'll be a nice way for the Mrs and I to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary, also, her birthday.

I wish you all the luck and good thoughts to you and your family Prozac.

I'm going to take that as an indication of a positive convergence of dates and intentions. Best of luck Family P, you will be in my thoughts for the next little while.

Update as you can, but not at the expense of time with the clan. Family comes first.

Best of luck!

Best of luck. Even though you don't know me, I don't know you, and I've lurked here for the past few years since my 04-07 GWJ heyday, you'll be in my thoughts. FWIW, that guy looks like he's ready to take a mountain all on his own, so he's in a great shape for the surgery!!

Prozac, best of luck to you and your family. I only partially can imagine how stressful a time like this must be, I know it was hard when it was me going in for surgery, I can only imagine if it had been one of my boys.

I don't know how much comparison I can draw between my experience -- also a sternotomy -- and I know everyone is different, but I'd at least like for you to know that I was consistently surprised how manageable the experience was for me. Doctors are able to do amazing things these days, but also the post-op experience is in many ways just as amazing. I know that for the first day or two I looked far worse than I actually felt. I will be thinking of you and your family on Thursday. Please let us know how things are going.

Lots of luck! I don't know the details, of course, but if it's just a minor valve defect, then things are looking up, relatively speaking. Future sequelae should be limited. Prozac 2.0 can look forward to kicking your ass with his own foil!

You're in my thoughts! Best of luck!

Good thoughts are on their way for all of you.

Sending good thoughts your way Prozac!

Good luck on Wednesday, Prozac 2.0!

Good mojo to you and your family!

Thinking good thoughts for Prozac 2.0 and you.

We will be praying for you and your wife and son.

Thanks guys, it means a lot. We're enjoying our last night together before it all begins to happen and knowing that we've got good vibes going around the world is very comforting.

I'm looking forward to your post that everything went well. Until then my thoughts are with you and your family.

Alright guys. This is it. We're leaving for the hospital soon and The Boy's surgery is in about 6 hours from now. I'll update as and when I'm able.

In the meantime here's a shot from his Baptism a few weeks ago, from left to right:
