Today marks two weeks since Jack had his heart repaired. He has been such a champ. We are pleased to report that today Jack's blood pressure is sustained without the help of medication. The past few days he has been weened off Epinephrine, Dopamine, Vasopressin, and Milranone. He continues to receive Amiodarone to help with the arrhythmia, Fentanyl for pain and whatever minerals he may need to keep his body in balance. They also turned down the ventilator today to let him adjust to breathing on his own. He has made such improvement during the last three days that we can hardly believe it. It is hard watching him get better knowing he is going to have to recover again from another surgery. However, the next operation should be less complicated and allow him to recover fairly quickly. We hope to have many more days similar to this one.
