NO SURGERY!!!!! As a matter of fact, the cardiologist said Lucas may NEVER need surgery to correct his ASD. The recommendation is to follow him, indefinitely, to monitor the defect. I can't express how I feel right now...mostly numb because after planning for this surgery for more than a year, I just can't quite wrap my head around the fact that it's NOT happening and may never happen.
A big fat "THANK YOU" and shout out to ALL the wonderful people who kept us in their prayers, especially Barbara and her tribe of "prayer warriors" who dilligently prayed on Lucas' behalf -- we are feeling so very blessed right now.
