Surgery a Success!

From Life of Owen

The surgeon (Dr. Manning- a great sport for this photo!) just came out and said they are finished! Everything went as expected and they did not end up putting in the band. They were able to fix the coarc and hypoplasia without a patch and the heart is working as it should. They will keep him sedated for the next day or so to keep a close eye on him and make sure his heart gets used to working with the new plumbing.

Couldn't ask for a better day... Owen's out of surgery and doing as well as he can and the US won their match!

Side note: Owen will not be accepting admirers for a few days so he can recover.
