18 days post-op

This is Kenley, 18 days after her open heart surgery.
We were at Shands on Friday, August 24th for her post op visit.

Below is what I hope to be my last heart related update on Kens:

Kenley had her post-op visit today at Shands including another round of chest xrays and an EKG.

She is 18 days post surgery and everything looks good!
Her heart is pacing great and the rhythm is normal. Gosh, I love that word.
For the first time, I can put my hand on her chest and feel her heart beating- not swooshing.

As explained to me, it isn’t likely that her heart will JET again (Junctional Ectopic Tachycardia).
This is what happened 24 hours after surgery. Whew.

She is walking, playing and sleeping… a lot of sleeping.

I don’t mean to continually send emails about Kenley- however I realize how many people have been praying for the Kens so I only feel it is right to share the latest news with you.

From this point on, Kenley is off her cardiac medications and will be routinely examined by her pediatric cardiologist at Shands.

We hope to have no news to share for a very long time :)
