not going to leave you guys hanging this time...

We just talked to Dr. Reddy about 5 mins ago. He said the operation went great, they did a 2 ventricle repair and installed a 19 (mm?) valve that should last a good 5-10 years. The tricuspid valve just required some adjusting of leaflets and they did the operation off the heart-lung machine which means they never had to stop his heart. They were able to close up his chest due to minimal bleeding. The pressures measured at 10 and it was the same on both the LA and RA. We are just waiting for him to get to the ICU. 

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, and Orion's newly repaired heart,  for all your support... our prayers were answered.
