We were all shocked beyond belief when Dr. Nikaidoh, Brooke's surgeon, asked her during rounds Saturday morning if she wanted to go home. All along, we had been told Tuesday or Wednesday at the absolute earliest for discharge- thinking it would be a miracle if we did make it home by then...a mere week after having her open-heart Fontan surgery.
Never in our wildest dreams could we have thought we would be sitting at home with our precious girl on Saturday night...just 4 (four) (FOUR) days after such a major, invasive surgery. Our surgeon even told us that he has performed over 300 Fontan procedures...and he has never seen a recovery as quick as our Cai Wei's. "She sets the record"...is what he said..."You must have had many, many people praying for her".
Yes we did, Dr. Nikaidoh. Yes we did. We are so thankful for our miracle girl and that she has returned HOME!!! We cannot thank you ALL enough for your prayers- you all are a huge part of this miracle. We truly felt surrounded by your prayers in the midst of this long, emotional, nerve-wracking week...and we couldn't have done it without you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Please continue to pray for Cai Wei during these next few weeks...while she is home, she still has a long way to come before she gets back to being "herself". Brooke's story from the very beginning has been absolutely miraculous, and God continues to amaze us. We just cannot wait to sit back and watch what He has planned for her life!!
For where two or three gather in my name,
there am I with them.
