Nick's Surgery

Todd took Nick to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City a couple of weeks ago for heart surgery. His PDA, which usually closes within 72 hours of birth, never closed. His oxygen rich blood that was suppose to be pumping through his body was headed back towards his lungs.
They implanted his PDA with a device to block the flow of blood. They made a small incision by his groin and traveled up to his heart through his artery. And he was home in his own bed by 10:30 the same night. Isn't modern technology amazing.
We are going in this morning to see if all went well.
