Green Light

As many of you know, Zoe had her post-op visit with Dr. Szwast yesterday.  This was our "stay or go home" appointment. Admittedly, I was nervous.

It turns out, Dr. Szwast had nothing but good news for us.  Zoe's Echo and chest X-ray looked great. She has no valve regurgitation, function looks great and flawless repair with a "smaller fenestration." Her liver is doing well and didn't take a hit, which can sometimes happen with this new anatomy. 

Plan is, a lifetime of follow up to keep an eye on her heart function and liver.  Post-Fontan is wonderful, but as I've heard many times over, it's "a faulty circulation," meaning it isn't ideal and can cause significant complications.  Given her speedy recovery and her body's quick acceptance to the Fontan, Dr. Szwast is very happy.

High fives from Dr. Szwast; Zoe was too fast!

A great appointment means... we're free to leave!!!  We're staying for suture removal on Friday and heading home Saturday.  Zoe is so excited to go home. She's looked forward to returning home since the second day we arrived in Philly! We're so happy it's sooner than later!

  7. The subject of Philosophy and its subcategories have been widely discussed in both the Western and non-Western world albeit with different focuses. Philosophy includes many different subfields involving investigation into our existence. These subfields include epistemology, ethics, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of science, social and political philosophy, and Metaphilosophy. Epistemology focuses on the study of Knowledge, also known as “Theory of Knowledge”. Ethics involves the study of moral values and rules, Logic; the study of reasoning. Metaphysics is the study of being and knowing also known as the principles of reality. Read more at Essay on Utilitarianism
    One of the first points to be clear about is that a philosophical essay is quite different from an essay in most other subjects. That is because it is neither a research paper nor an exercise in literary self-expression. It is not a report of what various scholars have had to say on a particular topic. It does not present the latest findings of tests or experiments. And it does not present your personal feelings or impressions. Instead, it is a reasoned defense of a thesis.
