That's a relief, Misdee. Hope he has a really good night in the thingy unit. Hope you hear from his Mum asap - it will help to get a report, won't it?

glad to hear he's out of theatre

he will be ventilated for a few days in an induced coma. then they will bring him out of it and off the ventilator. hopefully within a few weeks he'll be out of ITU and back on the ward and the girls can visit. its not uncomman however for patients to go back to theatre as there can be many other problems and risks with this op.

Glad to hear he's out misdee.

Are the girls not allowed in ITU? or are you choosing for them not to see him in there - I do understand if that's the case.

Hugs to you and Peter and your family xxx

Sending lots of positive and well wishes his way from Somerset, Misdee - and lost of positive wishes to you and the rest of the family too. Hope it does the trick until a new heart is available.

Deedee - hope he makes a full and speedy recovery so you and the girls can be with him.

Bless them - it must be very hard on them.

potty1 Wed 06-Jul-05 18:06:06

I think it's best avoided whilst he's on the vent - and when the unit is busy too - hope you get some more info soon misdee.

misdee Wed 06-Jul-05 18:07:08

tbh i am worried about them seeing him with the pump(s). its gonna be hard for them.

SoupDragon Wed 06-Jul-05 18:08:18

Young children are quite accepting of things though aren't they?

misdee Wed 06-Jul-05 18:09:08

they'll be very cautious, but they have seen the scars fr4om the ICD, and coped with the line oin his neck, just this thing is very very visable, and he wont be able to hold them easily.
